A restless ghost, a suicidal clown, a philosopher who transformed into a golden diamond, a training maniac in the body of a dwarf, a masochistic woman, a doomed mischief gay couple, a family of three living under beautiful mask... This is a Kafkaesque allegory: In the end of the world, the disquiet of men is the food of the gods.
