On a windy spring day in Brooklyn, at a secondhand furniture store begins the story of two great men, who decide to make their lives a little grandiose.
Georgian immigrant and former opera singer, Patiko Simpatico, finds work as a mover at the furniture store, where he befriends the extravagant Horatio, the store owner and a great patron of worthless art. Together they find a mutual obsession: to make a film about Patiko’s death.
Coincidentally, Patiko and Horatio live in the same brownstone. Patiko – downstairs with his wife Marichka and other family members. Horatio – upstairs with a morbid young man, Baby. No one knows why Horatio adopted him, but as a fact, they live together. Baby collects glass bottles from around the neighborhood when on the stairs of the old brownstone he notices Marichka sweeping dust. They immediately fall under the spell of each other’s scent… and while planning their film, Horatio and Patiko get lost in a twisted labyrinth, blurring reality and fiction.
