On his first ever hunting trip, in the calm of the Patagonian forest, a shy taxidermist who secretly dreams of executing the perfect robbery stumbles upon an opportunity to make his dreams come true. Caught up in a world of complex new rules and frightening violence, His lack of experience puts him in real danger.
And he has another complicated liability: he is an epileptic. Before each seizure he is visited by the “aura”: a paradoxical moment of confusion and enlightenment where the past and future seem to blend. These attacks appear without notice when he least expects them, just when he needs all his wits about him.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
