The Protagonist, the Auguste, is projected onto a huge screen of a picturesque cinema as a metaphor for the subconscious mind of the audience. He undergoes an existential development, dreaming of his counterpart, the white face clown and finally finding his true identity: the immortal archetype of the Trickster.
