Fando and Lis are a young couple who embark on a journey to the city of Tar. Lis is handicapped and is aided by Fando who pulls her along in a wagon or carries her in his arms as they encounter a series of offbeat characters and situations: a man plays a burning piano in a dump surrounded by dancers. A girl eats a rose, and three men and a child huddle under an umbrella as someone cracks eggs over their heads. The couple frequently quarrels as they struggle to complete their symbolic journey.
