Barjo is eccentric, naive and obsessive. After he accidentally burns down his house during a “scientific” experiment, he moves in with his impulsive twin sister Fanfan, who is married to Charles “the Aluminum King”. In his new surroundings, Barjo continues his old habits: cataloging old science magazines, testing bizarre inventions and filling his notebooks with his observations about human behavior and his thoughts about the end of the world. Through Barjo’s journals we see the development of conflict and sexual tension between Fanfan and Charles, and the descent of Charles into madness.
