  In a seaside town where nothing ever happens, where everyone
  knows everything about everyone, the lives of five inhabitants
  are reawakened with the arrival of the mysterious Madox.

  How can he be in so many different places at the same time?
  Secrets unravel and each of them tells a different truth.
  Or do they?
  Curiosities abound, rumours circulate, dreams crumple, the
  atmosphere overheats and anger erupts. Revolution! Catharsis!

  What's to be done when there is nothing left to do against the
  confines of the mind, against the limits of being, against the
  incarceration which is society, against that other prison which
  is solitude, against one's obsession of being excluded, against
  this early warning of madness, against ... everything?
