Set around a market in Barcelona, mixes two very different storylines: A fantastic tale of Gothic love on the one hand and an almost neo-realistic description of the relationship between an oligophrenic butcher and a prostitute on the other hand. The outcome of this combination is a Möbius strip shaped structure, a time and narrative paradox which contains itself.
