Synopsis


Eight-year-old Matilda’s memories of her family take the form of surreal visions. They feature her grandmother – a circus member and ex-mermaid, her erotically overheated mother, and her missing father whose broken heart, anger, and jealousy manifest as a rhino. Present and past actions are in a constant state of metamorphosis. The characters overstep their own boundaries, as well as the physical borders of the world surrounding them. Matilda’s life is full of grotesque, bizarre characters hungry for love. The atmosphere of wistfulness, desire, passion, and sorrow frames the story.
