In the big city of dreams live creatures most people no longer dream of. One where Medusa creeps through the quarters of a brothel, a cartel of birds burgeons a drug racket; a struggling actor cracks the chromosome to superstardom, and mermen kidnap fishermen by the coastline. Between the cramped by-lanes, behind the glittering skyline, beneath the dirt of the Arabian Sea, ordinary moments take an extraordinary turn as people rub shoulders with magical beings lurking in the shadows.
