The film tells a love story with the help of characters. The film consists of episodes that are not connected in plot and style, which have a single mood and a single meaning: a witty story-reflection on the relationship between people is revealed through sounds.

Thanks to modern technologies, today we have a new stage in the development of animation art. A person, having a computer, anywhere in the world, can make a cartoon, and he does not need to ask anyone for permission to do this. Such plots, such violations of taboos, ignorance of established rules, as in the past 10 years, have never been in animation. Thanks to modern technologies, animation as an art has made a leap, there are simply mind-blowing cartoons.
