A look at the city through the eyes of one of its drifters. Kokos’ daily routine walk offers a structure to the film, which in turn offers us, the observer, a unique insight both into the world of Kokos as well as the city of Nicosia its self. We follow this urban nomad through Nicosia, observing his relationship with the city. Ten years after it was shot, the film has a secondary function of documenting the streets and buildings of Nicosia. Buildings that no longer exist, like the Nicosia general hospital, to entire streets that have now been demolished.
