good news:



Subject: At the height of an identity crisis and wholly indifferent to surrounding reality, a man whose job it is to watch violent telvision programmes while being locked up in the Studio’s office, comes across an old friend he hasn’t seen for years while walking in the street.
The latter, a jew who seems to be suffering from persecution mania and fears for his life, is encouraged by his friend to seek admittance to a psychiatric clinic where, however, he is murdered.
It is then that the father of the child she is expecting is his dead friend…A short time afterwards, while walking in a park littered with filth, the man opens a letter from the deceases containing numerous sheets of paper covered by misterious, ambiguous words.
