This dark humored, animated film tells the story of Antonio Farfán is a 46-year-old man working in a notary’s office who has always believed that his personal and professional failure is the inevitable result of his look: he is bald, short and fat. Though his mind is never silent, his life goes almost uneventfully until the new notary arrives: a fatter, balder and shorter man who, unlike Antonio, is successful and loved by others. Dazed and confused, Antonio is now thrown to the real world where he faces his own fears and ends up experiencing rather unexpected situations.

Mario Prassinos liked Istanbul more than the current Istanbulites of today. It is obvious that you can understand this from the article written by her daughter Catherine Prassinos in the Pera Museum's book on the artist.
