The morbid and sometimes cynical narrative follows the life of Urban, who is trapped in impersonal and monotonous daily patterns from birth to death. Years pass relentlessly as Urban grows up and ages, with tireless repetitions persistently dominating his monotonous daily life like a working machine. However, just before death, a glimmer of the meaning of life dawns upon Urban.
