Sander Blom’s first feature film visualises some unusual manuals on 'how to lead the ultimate life' from a well-nigh mythological printing office. Always investigating the difference between ‘real’ and ‘not real’, Blom uses a collection of animated, documentary-like and fictionalised episodes to introduce his visions on highly divergent issues. These new outlooks put our views on reality and our thinking into perspective and enable 'ataraxia' (peace of mind).
