In a monotonous future where beings have lived all possible lives, "there's a whale, there's a tortoise, there's a parrot." A climbing gym serves as the futuristic scenario for two boys and one girl to wander around while they discuss diverse ideas about the dystopian world they’re trapped in. By speaking in allegorical terms, they avoid addressing their dreadful condition directly. Only one character is different - liberated from such condition. Their love affairs will start to permeate their points of view. The fiction of a movie they’re discussing will blend with their own story. In a world where people live forever, certain things won’t be possible: "there's a novelty, there's a lie, there's a death."
