Summary
  • A surreal, virtually plotless series of dreams centered around six middle-class people and their consistently interrupted attempts to have a meal together
  • "The Ambassador of the small South American country of Miranda is trafficking in drugs with some French bourgeois friends of his. But every time they want to have dinner together, their plans are put off due to unexpected events. In their quest of a lavish feast, the dividing-line between reality and dreams becomes unclear for each guest, leading to complete and utter ridicule." -- Back of container
