Incipit Vita Nova

Father of a family went to carry out his refuse bin and found himself in some strange world,where striking things happened to him. Meanwhile this world virtually is a grotesque generalization of that mode of life which is all the time implated by mass media in a consumption society. Does this “new life“ convert the main hero of the film into a passive doll? The film is accomplished in amixed technique uniting both live actors and puppets.
