Not being able to stand his drunken father and stepmother any longer, Tsog runs away from home and hides on the roof of an apartment building in the city. One day, he is mesmerized by Anu, a beautiful woman who lives on the top floor of the apartment building across from him. He buys a remote control to start watching her TV, and it makes the physical space between Tsog and Anu disappear. Well, at least it does in Tsog’s imagination. He comes to think about what the world would be like if he could change it with the touch of a button. The difference between ideals and reality is also seen through Tsog and Anu’s dream of flying and fear of heights. And Anu’s belief that she could overcome her fear if only she had someone to fly with runs an interesting parallel with Tsog’s loneliness from being estranged from his family.
