Beck and Max share a small apartment in Almaty. Wearing a suit and tie, they make a living by selling gadgets illegally on the streets to naive people. They earn little, but this is enough for them to live one day at a time. These loosers, these dropouts have dreams. Beck dreams of falling passionately in love, while more prosaic Max wants to leave Almaty and join his grand-mother in Germany. As time goes, their hope becomes weaker till the day Beck meets a young woman in red and madly falls in love with her. Max has kept saving money for his trip which represents all his hope for future. Will the two young men finally be happy ?

Nariman Turebayev does not use the same cynicism as in his previous short film Antiromantika, but succeeds to creates in small strokes an atmosphere full of poetry, humour and emotion expressed in a natural way. Beck and Max are attaching characters, and the film is a sensitive and warm comedy. While portraying them in their daily life, the director gives us an insight of the reality of a big city today in Kazhakstan, where the lack of work results in ingenuity for survival.
