He is also not on the best terms with local the law police officers, and he used to borrow a revolver from his pal and carry it when on hanging around the hood on Sundays.

On stormy night in an ugly urban landscape, Ciro Norte, a scientist with wild hair and thick glasses, straps himself to a chair he’s has fashioned with wires: lightening strikes, convulsing him. It seems his experiment has not worked. The next day, he drives his jalopy to a bar, sits alone, and weeps. But suddenly, a vortex sucks him into a dream state where he wanders, escapes man-eating fish, confronts his doppelganger, walks through a field of giant flowers, and comes upon Venus herself, buried up to her shoulders in sand.

Directed by French author Georges Perec, Les Lieux d’une fugue is an autobiographical account of the writer’s experience of running away from his aunt’s house at age 11.
