A creative man is obliged to do a work which does not satisfy him and to face his severe boss, his aggressive colleagues, as well as the every day’ s bureaucratic reality. All of a sudden through a butterfly (symbol of transformation and liberation) he is guided to a gate and enters the imaginary world of his mind. In this space initially he feels that he can express himself freely but soon he realizes that even there he is trapped. 


Crossing different stages of his subconscious he manages to find finally his true freedom.
