Introduction

The rhythm of humans going under the limbo pole one by one is creepily poetic and unsettling. Amidst the crowd of office workers gathering around, we are introduced to our good friend, Patrick Pan.  We shake our heads and look away as his greed leads him to working at a Bookmark factory under the wings of a successful tycoon whom he idolises.

It is dark and quiet. Bedtime stories.

The innocent Bookmark Factory wakes up from its sleep and rear its ugly head. Patrick willingly drowns himself in puddles to attain his dream, while his whole world does a cartwheel and eventually bites him, chews him up and spits him out.

There are more holes than that of underwear.

Patrick is now mush.
