This is a film about the dreams of people. We follow five protagonists as they try to fulfill their dreams. An elevator conductor in a hospital dreams of journeying into space. An old unemployed Stalinist dreams of a trip to Paris before he dies. A young farmer dreams of the perfect woman, one that he can choose for himself without the limitations of his village community. While these protagonists dream of escaping their present lives, two others, a young lesbian couple, play a very special role: they try to live out their dreams everyday. They hang out on the rooftops of Yerevan and get married with a doll as their pastor. They live free without any borders and define their own world. Both girls become leading representatives of Armenia’s Velvet Revolution. Perhaps their freedom of spirit is the strength of a new generation that led the Revolution? What happens to the dreams of the others? Are they affected by the girls’ dream, the Velvet Revolution?
