The adventure of Yoli Balulu and his gang of misfits
What’s your story?
Yoli Balulu is not doing well at all.
At the start of the adventure, we find the protagonist Balulu in the midst of an existential crisis, crushed by self-doubt and confined to his Viennese apartment, due to the corona lockdown, where he subsists on a diet of Netflix, YouTube, and soft-core Russian Marxists porn starring ex-Soviet gymnasts who go by the name Putin Brothers and Sisters.
His successes as a director, in projects both comedic and dramatic, are distant objects in the rearview mirror, and now he is fixated on his own inevitable demise and the eventual end of the universe.
So begins a satirical adventure in which Balulu plumbs the chasms of
Europe and America self-obsessed culture. While he searches for meaning in his life and career, this Balulu is also trying to reinvade himself as the leader of a new social movement, he is starting, called: The Mask.
