    • Synopsis
    • Freak and Jajà live in a no-man’s land, outside time and dates. Mankind no longer inhabits the planet. Only a few strange characters, survivors, make rare appearances. The two main characters meet at a bus-stop in the middle of no-where, they have never met before. The bus arrives, but it doesn’t stop. It’s the bus which brings to GODOT, the God who makes his presence felt beyond the mountain in the shape of a musical sound. Having lost the bus, Freak and Jajà decide to look for it on foot. They start on a journey which will make them meet the bizarre characters who live in this land. They find a mariachi storyteller, two actors reciting Adam and Eve in the middle of a salty lake, a child who appears to be the ‘magic’ voice of Godot, an oracle who lives on the extractor well of an abandoned mine, and finally a solitary girl who lives on a beach. Unfortunately, before the end of their trip, Freak and Jajà will die. They fail to reach their God.
