What if we could live forever?
Eternal life sounds marvellous but what if we think further?
A young man is confronted with these exact questions.
What is Man? HOMO shows six faces, six phases in cleverly-connected, blackly comic episodes as desperate characters meet unwittingly in a modern metropole in the eternal search for the means to survive, and find some kind of love. The jobless graduate becomes a grave-digger, the grieving widow a nun, the priests gamble and gangsters rule the courts.
