Marcelo likes to play black metal with his solo band, tinker with amateur science and wear a suit whenever it seems even the least bit appropriate. His destitute situation in a conformist Belgian suburb pales compared to his uncle who prefers to wear dresses and sometimes even naughty fishnet stockings. At the beginning of summer, an unexpected message arrives about the death of Marcelo’s father who was an anthropologist. That gives the dynamic duo an opportunity to escape the debilitating mediocracy and to travel to a faraway island to find out the truth about what happened.
Boris Baum brings a fresh breath to the road movie genre with a remarkably original approach which dares risk with technical eclecticism and makes self-aware forays into indie cliches and the skewed reality of art house, while not balking from the freshness of guerilla style solutions.
