Current project status: DEVELOPMENT
The story depicts a neo-apocalyptic world told through the landscape of the polluted village of Makhboul, whose bay has become infested by a swarm of jellyfish due to pollution. Because of governmental neglect, the inhabitants give up and let fate take its course, hoping for a divine sign. Except for Boub, an evil archaic merchant, who takes advantage of the proliferation of jellyfish in the bay. Preying upon the inhabitants’ sense of guilt as well as the political chaos, he creates a clothing project made from the jellyfish, thereby pretending to cope with the environmental issue. To maximize profits, Boubb’s maniacal plan leads him to throw the waste of jellyfish into the sea to proliferate it throughout the Ziak basin.
