SYNOPSIS: A cyclist with smoking addiction runs out of cigarettes. To get more, he joins a surreal bike race, which has a packet of cigarettes for prize. What’s even more strange is that, during the competition, some spectators try to hold back the other candidates in order to help him. Will our hero finally manage to win his prize (thanks to the crowd’s help and to his mysterious stops)?
