Synopsis

Like a modern day Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, Sam and Jonathan, two traveling salesmen peddling novelty items, take us on a kaleidoscopic wandering through human destiny. It is a journey that unveils the beauty of single moments, the pettiness of others, the humor and tragedy hidden within us, life’s grandeur as well as the ultimate frailty of humanity.

Weku rojeka modêrin Don Quixote û Sancho Panza, Sam û Jonathan, dû rêvîngêt firoşyarin kerestên nû difiruşin, me di bene geriyaneka rengîn bi rêya qedera mirovan. Geryaneke ku caniya demekê kurt diyar diket, tiştên biçwîk yên hindek kesên dî, xweşî û nexweşiya di naf meda veşartî, û mezinahiya jiyanê herwesa bê çareyiya bê dumahî ya mirovtîyê.
