This is the story of a dead hero (it follows the tradition of the hero as a symbolic figure in a determined tribe/community and pertaining to a determined time and space). Being obsolete, the dead hero falls into deep melancholy; he’s not concerned about his dead status as he is struggling with his (non) symbolic existence.

The whole story belongs to the fringes of reality, the dead hero inhabits a subterranean space simultaneous to that of the living, where he is not seen or heard. Separated from life itself he anguishes in his hole, until he finally decides to change his condition..
