The lust for life awakes

11 year old Paloma is counting down the days to her 12th birthday, because this year she is getting herself a big present – suicide. Intelligent way beyond her years and bored out of her mind with the banal and tedious routines of the bourgeoise, Paloma attempts to fill her days with something that may go someway towards inspiring her. Enter Mr. Ouchu, a new Japanese tennant, who slowly manages to bring some of Paloma's lust for life back.
