Zoetrope

Two robots – Primus and Decimus have to go through a labyrinth that is full of extraordinary objects. To find the right way or sometimes just to satisfy their curiosity, they examine and recover the stories of the objects. Thus they face strange characters, pursuing their aims. Sometimes the pursuing is impetuous; sometimes it is painful and desperate. The robots gradually realize that their efforts are accompanied by some kind of hopelessness.
