Description:
A row of patients suffering from obsessive-compulsive disorder. The first patient is always painfully focused on energy flows in whichever room he happens to be in. He believes that the sharp folds of a curtain forcefully hamper the inner flow of energies, and in order to address this problem he walks through his house several times a day and rearranges the drapes with the handle of a mop. Every five minutes he checks to make sure there are no ghosts in the cobwebbed basement room used as a storage space, preferring to do this in the company of friends. Then there is a boy who wants to shoot paintball rounds full of shit into people's faces under the noble flag of purification. Finally comes the girl who is late everywhere she goes because before leaving she feels compelled to put everything, even the tiniest of objects, in its proper place, to the millimeter. (Evelin Páll)
