A young man (Mihran Tomasyan) walks in a desolated flea market in a completely head in the clouds mood. He encounters an incarnating object while checking walls covered with old posters with prying eyes and carried away into another reality. What seem to be so strange about him is not only his looks and moves, but also the odd fact that he is leaving a white speckle behind him. The crowds’ reaction to this strangeness turns into a common destiny by the sudden start of a pouring rain. As soon as the rain stops, man tries to get away from there, but he immediately awakens to see a new reality; puddles attached to his feet. Having experienced that process on his own, the man meets some other strange characters while carrying the puddles with him.

A woman is leaving her house What is that she is carrying, stairs? She places down the stairs in front of the house...
...steps down with a string bag and then, walks away carrying the stairs on her back. Stairs; a piece of urban furniture. They provide accessibility and transition. They function like bridges which are bonding private spaces with public ones, … like spatial extensions providing connectivity.
This woman uses the stairs like a bridge, akin to the mobile bridges which protected the castles in the middle-ages. Instead of an irremovable structure which would invite strangers into the safety of her house, she uses a personalized, mobile structure that would function like a key. Another feature of this mobile stairs is to enable intervention to spaces. It is adaptable to any space. Put it down, climb on it and you will achieve a fresh point-of-view. It provides a new look, a new perspective and power to control space.
*“She carried on carelessly, up and down. It didn’t matter where…” Georg Bushner

In a family made up of a grandmother, daughter and a 9 year old granddaughter, granddaughter is forced to eat. The moral supporter of this little girl who feels contented about her games and within her own world, is a man behind the curtain only visible to her and no one has any clue whether this man is real or imaginary.
While the Fried Chicken is a monstrous and aversive thing for the little girl, it turns in to a four - meter -long avant-garde object that is pulled over by the (same) man behind the curtain under cheers in an isolated corner (street) populated by the homeless. Big fried chicken has social dynamic.
Civilization is, the some of ways of lives showing identical sides in a society, social reflexes, beliefs, ideological and artistic events; shortly organization styles. Reactions; which person gives his/her own or with conscious, or completely by chance, are some the main points to understand and to give a meaning for society's structure.
Last part of the movie is structured in order to understand the dynamics of Salazar's 3F's (fado-football-fatima) trilogy, understand the reactions of the individuals to actions and thinking about the reasons in Turkey, especially after 80's, the cheer culture within the raise of liberal politics and with big supplement of communication devices' development.
