Volleyis a love story, in a sense it is 'the' Love Story, that grand tale which we never cease to applaud: the brutality of biological lust tempered by the delicate delusions of adoration. The monkeys of 'Volley' are cursed by their creator with deeply corrupted bodies, with scarred skin and secret interiors. They inhabit a world the colors of spun sugar and wedding mints, where rutting lust and infinite tenderness are indivisible.
