Synopsis: The action of "The Urubu Bird and the Virgin" takes place in a tall apartment building, in which the protagonists of the movie live. The garbage collector, the virgin, the voyeur grandma, the man that always solves crossword puzzles and his wife that cannot stand his obsession with the enigmatic, distinguish themselves by their specific individuality and eccentricity. It is there, in the elevators that many strange and unusual people meet each other. The garbage collector is obsessed with flying and he gathers nylon from the garbage containers which he later glues together, making a big balloon which he will fly. Also he is in love with the virgin. He needs a lot of courage to give her flowers and to tell her he loves her. When he finally does that, all the neighbors witness the scene and ridiculously support him in his intention. The voyeur grandma enjoys going through pornographic magazines and alcohol; in one of the neighboring apartments several shady individuals play endless games of cards; one hopelessly in love sings in front of the flat of his beloved endlessly. The neurotic roommate who is bothered by any kind of noise nervously reacts to the vents in the neighboring flats. In the end they all get together on the big patio under the improvised balloon of the garbage collector, expecting the big event - the flight of the balloon.
