Presentation by Studio Vortex :

endless rambling in a world
where commodities are the ultimate reality,
crisscrossing to the rhythm of unexpected events
and imperatives related to the urgency of survival

Men rediscover dissatisfaction,
carving themselves a destiny
to become protagonists of the story.
To live the infamy,
to rid themselves of slavery through the satisfaction of instinct.
