George is an old widow man that serenely lives his last years somewhere at the edge of the world in a Moldavian village. George believes that life continuously dodges him, until the day he notices that his old wooden toilet has the ability to teleport him from one place to another. He can visit Tokyo, climb the Everest mountain and other various tourist destinations.

Great desires are borned by great possibilities - will he be able to resist all the temptations of the modern world? It depends only by him.
