    • Synopsis
    • We are on a deserted and abandoned island, in a dimension without either place or time.
      A body, floating in the sea, comes to a beach: it is Kaspar Hauser, the heir to the throne of island, who disappeared for obscure reasons when he was still a small boy. It was Hauser’s destiny to come back alive, but his mind is apparently disturbed or lacking in clarity. The boy is cared for by the Sheriff of the island, who gives him a place to stay in the old jail. Since his arrival is the only novelty in the routine of the small community he will soon find out who his friends are (the Sheriff and the Clairvoyant) and who his enemies are (the Pusher and the Duchess).
      Unfortunately his stay will not last long, as he will soon be dead and will return to the place where he came from: the sea.
