The man without qualities, homo economicus, homo sociologicus, fractalis homo, homo erraticus... Under our masks and in the shadow of the crowd, we would all be chameleons wandering through the mass in order to seek our individuality. It is this existential paradox of "postmodern" man that Driften seeks to highlight.

 

Between solitude and togetherness, 6 characters crushed by the weight of social conventions that has made of them what they are unaware of being, gather on the night of the autumnal equinox when the day is equal to the night.
 

Together they will do something one does to not completely vanish without fighting, to not go through life pretending to live ones life.

Just to be able to state: we lived at that time. And at that time we were just so.
