There is nothing he has not already seen. Then a young woman bursts into his room to take him to the fantasy realm of Neverland. Her constant companion is the prehistoric man George. He is half man, half animal and the last of his kind. In unconditional lapse, the traveler follows the two oddities through the night. Poetically, with powerful images dance and language, Antú Romero Nunes tells of a fantastic world that refuses to grow up.
