The laboratory of life: a laboratory of birth, life, and death, where everything is physical or material, yet everything is completely metaphysical. A birth that hurts you, a life that injures you, and a death that makes you cry.
What are they like, those who are born? What are they like, those who live? How do they live, how do they die? And in between, a dance of fathers, mothers, and children, infants and the elderly, men and women – a dance of life and death, a dance of emotions and the body, a laboratory of relationships and sexuality. The apocalyptic world and the world of the unconscious, filled with competitiveness and liberation, violence and thankfulness, contempt and tenderness, fear and peace, anger and love, hatred and catharsis, enslavement and power, homelessness and belonging, condemnation and regret, accusation and suicide. A war of human beings, on the inside and outside.
