"Who hasn't felt at a given moment at some point during their shorter or longer life that they wanted to step out of their usual environment. To hide away from the world, to escape from j the past, themselves and the present. To disappear from the face of the earth. Bulcsú aged twenty something has already made this step.... This film is a special mixture of tale and reality, down below, under the ground. The story is about a strange young man, Bulcsú, his fellow inspectors, the management of the Underground company, a rival ticket inspection team ,the Roadrunner, the Shadow, about racing along the tracks...and perhaps about love and starting anew. It is about the mostly comical relationship between passengers and ticket inspectors everybody is familiar with."
