"The widespread systematisation of our society is depicted in the story of a man who discovers an exit on the building where he has been working all his Life."

AA: A dystopian corporate fantasy in high style with a staggering flight of fantasy. A story of a quest, a story of an attempt to escape from the labyrinth of the gloomy corporation. The protagonist, the little man, starts to follow a strange chain of reflections of bright light. There seems to be no way out of the huge building. He comes to strange doors, strange locks, strange passages. There is an underground tunnel with a flood of paper. There are strange winds and an infinite waiting room full of zombies with queue numbers. Accidentally the man comes to a solution and enters into a blinding light in the desert. Compelling and very well made.
