Storyline

Running away from a life filled with failure and rejection, Nikos desperately dives into the dark waters of human desire, after closing a faustian pact. He is given an old piece of animal skin that promises its owner everything, but at a high price - his life. As he steadily steps down the spiral of madness, Nikos wonders if he could ever wake up from a life that more and more resembles a dream. A contemporary, radical outlook on Balzac's classic novel.
