Comedy. A fantastic tale, partly narrated by the unborn baby of a young girl who finds herself pregnant following the visit of a touring theatre to the ancient city by the sea which is her home. Although she wants to become an actress, she misses the theatre's performance, finding herself instead that very evening falling down a hillside with one of the actors. When the company leaves, she finds herself mysteriously expecting a baby. Her shocked family then sets out on a long trek in search of the father.
