Waiting for minimum critic reviews


A humorously poignant Cinderfella tale about a spooky carnival and a misfit who discovers the truth behind his sorry circumstances.

A young man feels trapped in a family where there is no common ground. He serves them but does not share a sense of belonging with the uncouth clan. His sole friend is a cockroach. Books have provided an escape, sustaining him through a difficult childhood. Can he ever leave this den of thieves and hooligans, or is he doomed to remain one of them yet apart? "Nuance" is a grim fairytalish horror story about wanting to be someone else, wishing for a new identity, a different path in life.
