In a virtual cut-throat world that brooks no mistakes, everyone is deadline-driven. The main character, a postman, is assigned the mission to deliver a letter on a unicycle in eight minutes. Torn between love and duty, the character lives through short-lived moments of passion, scrubbing round the rules.
The rules are clear and unequivocal:
Everyone must travel alone on a UNICYCLE.
Every assignment must be accomplished within the DEADLINE.
Every inconsistency is to meet with dire CONSEQUENCES

Σε ένα κόσμο όπου δεν επιτρέπονται λάθη, η τήρηση των διοριών είναι υποχρεωτική. Ο πρωταγωνιστής, ένας ταχυδρόμος, έχει να παραδώσει ένα γράμμα μέσα σε οκτώ λεπτά. Κατά τη διάρκεια της διαδρομής πρέπει να επιλέξει ανάμεσα στο καθήκον και το συναίσθημα. Ζει στιγμές πάθους και έρωτα, αψηφώντας όλους τους κανόνες.
Οι κανόνες είναι ξεκάθαροι:
Όλοι πρέπει να μετακινούνται πάνω σε μονότροχα ποδήλατα.
Όλες οι αποστολές πρέπει να διεκπεραιώνονται εντός της χρονικής προθεσμίας.
Οι ασυνέπειες έχουν οδυνηρές συνέπειες. AWARDS
