Pressurised by his girlfrind Lilly, who drives him crazy with her obsession about having a baby, thretened by kokser, a man to whom he owns money, and trying to dodge an omnius preacher called Klaus, who takes the words of bible as literal truth, Larry seeks help from Bruno, a homeless drifter, crossing the border between dreams and reality.
