    The German Room

    A female protagonist - a young woman - travels from Argentina to Germany trapped by emotional conflicts. When she arrives, she is constantly exposed to all kinds of adventures and incidents, some funny, others tragic.

    The President's Room

    In a nameless, homogenised suburb, in an equally nameless country, every house has a room reserved for the president. No one knows when or why this came to be. It is simply how things are. No one appears to question or contradict this spatial disposition, except one young boy.

    Trout, Belly Up

    The peace and violence of Guatemala is ever-present in the background in these tales. We follow Henrik, a good man struck time and again by misfortune, as he confronts different diatribes posed by the crude realities of farming life. Through his journey we meet merciless businessmen, drug dealers and fallen angels, all wanting a piece of their pie.
