Description

An incredible 220-page wordless comic graphic novel about man's restless nature. Well told and universal.

From the publisher:

The grass is always greener elsewhere? A man, in his forties, married, two children, leads a well-ordered life of little mechanical routines in a large western city, by the sea. One day, he is attracted by the maritime horizon that emerges between two buildings ...

On a whim, he sets sail, and he takes a ticket on a ship to leave. Elsewhere. Far away. Alas, this boat is caught in a violent storm. The only survivor, he is shipwrecked on an island. There he discovers a very special community that lives in harmony caused by drugs that make "happy", a priori. He will share this chemical harmony until the day he forgets to take his pills and regains his free will. He decides to run away again ...

Grégory Mardon, in 220 pages, tells a funny story about our desire to change our lives, to find happiness outside what is under our feet, and that can become a perpetual flight forward.

Mardon beautifully mocks the tribulations of modern man always looking for something better ...
