When we meet Polza Mancini, a very large man, he is being held by the police. Someone named Carol Oakley is in a coma and apparently Polza had something to do with it. The police interrogate him, but his story is strange and takes a while. He was a married man who gave it all up one day to live in the woods under a big tree, eat chocolate, and drink alcohol. When he meets a group of people living nearby in the woods, things change a bit. Throughout, there are touchstone moments that Polza refers to as "blasts" which are accompanied by images of stone statues like those found on Easter Island.
Could one of these "blasts" be what led to his encounter with Carol? The art is black and white and the characters are a bit garish with long noses like beaks and blotchy skin. Polza is just huge, in size and fat. The story feels like it could translate into an interesting indie film.
