The constant juggling between comfort and insecurity and the incorporation of hypocrisy and conflict into our daily lives have made us contemporary human monsters. We have turned into beings far removed from the people we once thought we were.

In this story two men and a woman embark on a journey, convinced that connecting to each other might rescue them. The conclusion in the end that in life we remain utterly alone leaves then in a rather hopeless state. Having to cope with social pressure, they find themselves failing in all aspects of communication. With their lack of enthusiasm and a monotony, born out of numerous errors, that kills, they travel through the land of social humiliation and face the horror of forced joy and desperate interactions in order to fit in somewhere, sometimes.

Trying hard to find peace between who they are and the world that surrounds them they end up on a post paradise planet - alone but together. The place that was promised them, given that they behaved well, has suddenly lost all value, as have they.
