Plot
Shortie, Beanpole, Alekos and Sinoue, everyday people gathered together with quite a few other familiar faces in the Garden of God, spend their time going to church, working out in the yard, learning how to dance in the cafeteria, reciting poetry or extracts from plays. They play ball, keep notes, lose their friends, strike their enemies and promise themselves that come Christmas they will make their way down to the sea. They smoke cigarettes, think about people, take photographs, listen to music and light candles. They drink alcohol, paint, set fire to their bodies. They ask for their coffee and cigarettes, spend Christmas handing out presents, tighten a belt around their neck and lei their body swing to and fro. With their breaths they draw the wishes they want to send and soak their feet in the basin next to the stove. They stage uprisings, throw beds, break joists, burn mattresses. They become friends sweep up with brooms, slash their arms and are laid to rest in rooms with white sheets. They make decisions, create the conditions and "make their way down" to the sea. The day dawns and the sun lies ahead of them, while in the Garden of God they change shifts and try to wake up. The wheels turn, the sand recedes and the noise wakes up those who are trying to wake up in the Garden of God...
