The story of a man who feels happy only when he is unhappy, a man addicted to sadness, who has such need for pity, he's willing to do everything to evoke it from others. This is the life of a man in a world not cruel enough for him.

Plot Summary

With his comatose and hospitalised wife into a steadily critical condition, a neat and grief-stricken solicitor finds himself all alone to take care of his teenage son. Struggling to cope with a shocking new reality while shrouded by a thick veil of perpetual sadness, more and more, the stone-faced lawyer realises that extreme pain and misery can evoke intense pleasure, as the neighbours' unconditional sympathy becomes increasingly addictive. Now, the pained father's burgeoning dependence to pity and the kindness of others turns into a plentiful source of bliss, and he's prepared to go to great lengths to prolong it. However, what happens if, God forbid, his wife recovers? Written by Nick Riganas

Quotes Lawyer: The expression that people adopt when they feel pity for someone is an expression that is hard for them to replicate, if you ask them to. They usually flutter their eyelids, lower their head, and say: I don't know what to say, courage, patience or something like that.
