A salesman wanders the streets in search of the address he has written on a small sheet of paper. The city is vast and confusing. He spends the entire day looking trying to find his way to the address, but no one seems to be of any help. Quite some time has passed since he’s been home, and he is not even sure if his key will still work should he find the correct address. By some miracle, however, he makes his way to the correct apartment. Now he just wonders if the woman inside will invite him in after he's been gone for so long.
