There is a
place named Kantarzsín. A small place, somewhat dusty. Maybe no one ever heard
of it. None the less for a short while it will become the center of the world.
A number of life changing events launch on that fateful evening, when according
to tradition the locals and visitors meet on the town’s market square. One of
them had identification papers that he used to be from here, but he lost it a
long time ago, just like how they lost themselves. Another one harasses the
passers by with his cheap drinks and is willing to do anything to get paid and
grow his influence. None the less takes good care of his foggy headed wife.
There’s another couple that always ransacks everyone, still doesn’t have
anything, and a woman who is seemingly perfect and yet still looks for
happiness in all the wrong places. They seem like the easy prey of wealthy
traders and big city schmucks, but as the far-seer of Kantarzsín already knows,
anyone’s life can turn upside down any moment. And the goods…maybe just a bunch
of junk, but maybe invaluable relics of the past. It slowly turns out that in
the image of various objects human fates are bought and sold. Maybe one can
pass on them, maybe not. In music, in dance, in song, in peculiar sights, in
colorful drinks these ever-entangling lives show their true colors that maybe
already happened to all of us, be it in thought or deed.
