Clownesque fable about the strength of friendship.
Four artists arrive in the night at the place where their show is to be presented. They fall asleep only to discover upon waking that their audience is already there. The show begins, but things get all mixed up: day-to-day life interferes with the performance, forcing it down a new, unpredictable path.
In these artists’ hands, everyday objects become tools to create a quirky universe, sometimes bordering on the absurd. The characters let their imaginations run wild to the point where they even lose sight of reality for a while. They dive head first into the unpredictable, with virtuosity guiding their fantasy.
And that’s where the real journey begins: for these four pals, time is a great travel companion that sparks their curiosity, stimulates their sense of awe, and enhances their tremendous joy in being together. One thread leads to another as they weave the present moment, driven by their uncontrollable whimsicalness and overwhelming desire to share their adventure with the audience.
