Under a persistent rain, which seems destined to never subside, Stavros lives and moves through the streets of dark and gloomy nameless city; he has a job and a fianc e, his life is normal. Yet several, different voices talk to him - sometimes whispering, sometimes whining or yelling - whenever he hears the water running. One day, Stavros wanders the city under a heavy rain; voices become insistent, revealing his deepest, unspeakable secrets as well as his dreams and memories. He is tormented by these mysterious voices, perhaps a sign of his madness. Or perhaps of a wider, collective madness, which infects everyone around him, to the point of being transmitted to the entire universe.
"I hear voices."
"It's called schizophrenia."
"No ... I only hear them when the water runs."
"It's always called schizophrenia."
