The filmmaker tried to present a puzzle made with the images of those people he encountered during his 4-year travelling in Europe. There is no clear storyline to follow in the classical way; the only clue is to project something personal into it, before each single picture got evaporated from the screen.

Genre fiction
Length 22'00

Kókos (Shock)
