This movie tells the true story of Crulic, a 33 years-old Romanian, absurdly dead in a polish jail, after a hunger strike following a judiciary mistake.

Anca Damian takes us into an ironic tale Crulic tells us beyond the grave, in voiceover. Alternately funny, touching, absurd, squeaky and revolting, this documentary explores different techniques of animation, which embody and gives life to this story.
