“Who are you then?"
"I am part of that power which eternally wills evil and eternally works good.”
―Johann Wolfgang von Goethe,Faust: First Part
Faust Traumann, an old intellectual giant, living in a local nursery home, is tormented with dreams over lost love. at the crossroad between sleep and wakefulness he sees a vision: angels guiding the dead into upper realms and collecting their souls. The voice of a God-Boss is displeased with the angels, commanding them to bring fresh, and light filled souls, and not the usual miserable ones.
The angels turn to the bewildered Faust with a deal: He could be young and in love again in exchange for helping them find and harvest light-filled souls for god.
A Tragic-comedy with no words, exploring the power of fantasy and salvation.
