A man collapsed in the chair with a sensory overload from a myriad of conversations that now merge into one. He tries to sift what was important from what was frivolous, remembering the good and reinventing the bad.

The unexpected appearance of his alter ego initiates a dialogue both intense and absurd, truths, lies and dreams all expressed through movement and a somewhat rebellious puppet.
