As Pepa gradually grows up and ages, the political and social situation around him changes. But one remains the same: Pepa is lonely in the middle of other people. Throughout their life they try to do everything right; so that others like him – but with the exception of a few moments in this quest, they are always up and running.
As Pepa’s optimism fades with age, His belief in a better future gradually changes into resignation, and Pepa’s life becomes just a sequence of routine experiences. It seems that the last joy that Pepa is left with are the cigarettes and the innocent nightingale of the seemingly happy married couple from the neighborhood.
Then, an unexpected impulse comes to Pepa’s life. Pepa’s lost optimism regains strength again, and Pepa once again, for the last time, lets go on a journey of happiness. Because this time it must go!
