The 13 stories that comprise this anthology explore how the human being moves in a society and shows that each action will inevitably lead to a reaction, a consequence. Through each story the reality of lonely characters living in a hopeless world is revealed. This is either through simple, trivial and normal events or others that are on the brink of madness and terror. However, all of the stories have a common central theme: the human condition.
