People Are Strange Shorts

Jim Morrison was the epitome of strange. In fact, he was the Lizard KING of strange!! Named in honor of Jim’s lyric legacy, this threesome of puzzling exposés will have you scratching your head, your hands, your face, your…(stop scratching that!!) And what’s really strange is that you’ll probably recognize yourself in some of these characters, which is when you’ll want to head for the desert with a big bag of peyote and a bottle of Jack. Oh, wait. That’s me, not you.

Never mind. Enjoy the show!!

When Helga Landowsky discovers the broken jug in an antiques store near the German/Polish border, she wants to have it at any cost. But the old lady has reckoned without Jakub Lato. Because the antiquarian does not want to trade his ware for money. In exchange for the jug, he wants Helga to tell him a story. And a story she can tell.

It is an experience from the second world war. A story about pain and loss. And while Helga is still narrating, she and Jakub begin to realize that both their lives are wondrously interwoven. And that they are now, almost 70 years later, telling the story is last chapter together.

Because only this way, the story can finally become a good story.
