The main character of the documentary is named after the director of the film, and is inspired by his experiences in society after graduating from university, as well as the facts of the author's life as a child, when he faced the difficult circumstances of social survival and was running around with his parents trying to earn a living. With the tone of an official data report and the language of the city, the film "vulgarly" reads and reports on the living conditions and struggles of the masses of ordinary people, like the director.
