Basile Matin has a bizarre dream. He dreams that tonight could be his last night. In order to triumph over mortality, he decides never to sleep again. A completely absurd story which breaks all the rules and repeatedly oversteps the border between reality and fantasy. If there is any at all. 


Synopsis

Basile Matin has a bizarre dream. He dreams that tonight could be his last night. If he falls asleep, he dies. At least, this is what his dream told him. He saw Faftao-Laoupo, the symbol of the pre-ultimate sleep. But Basile feels too young to die. In order to triumph over mortality, he decides never to sleep again. Igor is another young man. He is broke and bored, so Basile’s story is a source of great fascination for him. Last but not least, there’s Johnny Got, an amateur journalist and detective, interested in stories which are not his business. He sets out to find Basile... A completely absurd story which breaks all the rules and repeatedly oversteps the border between reality and fantasy. If there is any at all.
