Minuscule Tragedies


The story’s characters confronts daily life with all its strangeness and cruelty. Suspended moments in course of their life bring them face to face with themselves, as their cowardice and profound anguish catch up with them. The false banality of daily life follows the twisted path of emotions, bringing thoughts of death and of missing socks.
