A closet located next to a boiler keeps a secret. An employee at a maternity ward can finally know the identity of the mother who abandoned her. An old man tries to explain a five-years-old girl how miserable his life is. Three stories of (very) dark humor with existential hints. Three novellas about murder, violence and death. But mainly about males and females, infants and old people. About paradoxes of human nature and behaviour. A dark comedy; so dark.
