Storyline

The story of a fakir who works in a decadent circus. He and his colleagues do weirder numbers each day to attract audience, and warrant their survival. The numbers resemble a horror-show and they get marginalized. Through fable and allegory, reality turns stronger and stronger, and more absurd. Written by <lukejoplin@infolink.com.br>
