A woman who is constantly followed by a white horse, a philosopher trying to understand if he has caught rabbits from his farm or is it that the rabbits have imprisoned him, a worm inside an apple trying to discover infinity, a runner who can't stop running even if he wants to and a lonely man who converses with his mirror about life and loss and also an animal trainer who lives with snakes, hedgehog, frogs and mice in his apartment understanding love of a different kind.
These are several surreal textual pieces in the play like fragments of a mirror. At one time, the object existed in perfect condition. It reflected the sky, the world, and the human soul. And there was - no one knows when or why - the explosion. The remaining pieces are undoubtedly part of the original substance. And it is within this adherence to the original substance that their unity resides, their perfume and their atmospheric identity.
