    • Synopsis
    • The silent darkness of the bedroom is broken by a greetings message on the answering-machine. A sudden awakening for Chico on his thirtieth birthday. What a mess! Too late to meet his girlfriend, too late for the meeting at Expo '98, and, even worse, an outsize hangover. But that's not all. Lying next to him in bed is a young man with whom he has spent the night.
      He must now pick up the threads of his everyday life.
      Meanwhile his companion from the night before, with blue eyes and feline body, wanders around the house feeling both curious and amused, with the restless happiness of a twenty-year old with all the time in the world to spare.
      It is his hunger for life that, in an undeclared game, will transform what could otherwise have been a normal birthday morning for Chico...
