Moon has fascinated men since the ancient times. In the times of a full moon people have attributed mystical properties to its influence. Quite often we hear that someone was unable to sleep or slept restlessly because of the full moon. Also, a certain number of people go out and act somewhat crazily and out of boundaries. The film protagonist is called Stickman, a citizen of a metropolis, out on the full moon for a night in the town in order to diminish its unwanted impact. Stickman decides to raise the outing to a new level by consuming everything he can get his hand on. The film ends with a new morning bringing refreshment and leaving the nocturnal frenzy way behind.
