The heroes of Taxidermia are three men. Three generations of a family, who happen to live in Eastern Europe, in Hungary. The story of the grandfather, the awkward batman of a ruthless captain in the 2nd World war; the father, who is a professional sports man, a competitive eater during the socialist era; and the story of the son, who is a taxidermist, the sculptor of organic material, is told by the youngest member of the family. Surrealism and historical facts get mixed up in his imagination, creating a kind of "fairy realism".
