Guided Meditation

A lyrical comic fantasy.

Five characters are not looking for an author, but rather a place where they may escape from themselves. Sometimes a bond is formed between them and sometimes it untangles. In the army. The bank. The university or at the beach. A chaotic world in which the only way to survive is through dream, humor, disguise and playing.

Pisces

The tale of Fishel Carp, the town’s tycoon, Betzalel Moshe the orphan and a big fish, whose ancestors date back to the fish who accompanied Jonah the Prophet on his journey to Ninveh. A cruel and funny satire about fish, people and insatiable gluttony.
