    • Synopsis
    • Cendre is a fragile and unstable young man, who lives with his younger sister in an isolated area of Macau. He pursues an obsessive quest to connect with the familiar characters of his childhood’s fairy tales, posting numerous ads to find the princess of his dreams.
      When he finally meets her, he realizes that his desires don’t conform to any story he read as a child. In an attempt to live his perfect dream, he unleashes his compulsions in hallucinatory episodes.
      But do the people interacting with Cendre even exist? Is his sister a fairy, a witch, or a mere invention of his disturbed mind? Who is he truly in love with? Cendre’s reality starts to disintegrate as he uncovers some truths about himself which he was not aware of until they grew out of proportion and threaten to destroy his carefully balanced world.
