Day of the Idiots
Carol is an attractive but somewhat eccentric 20-year-old. Coming from a well-to-do family, she doesn′t have any financial concerns and could lead an easy life. But it is this daily indifference that dissatisfies her, makes her restless, and rouses in her ideas, fantasies, longings - all beyond the accepted norms.
Carol demands a lot from her environment and herself. Because it is her life that is of concern, and no one else′s, she wants everything and she wants it now.
But what reason could she have for behaving this radically and outrageously? Why does she ruin other people′s lives? Just because she does have the hang on her own life?
What is it that Carol needs? Love? Devotion? Affirmation? Isn′t there anybody to give it to her? Why does she think she cannot lead a normal life? What makes her enter the world of psychiatry to look for the sincerity in this world of illusion and deception? Isn′t her obsession self-destructive and couldn′t her desire for extremeness be the extreme longing for death?
Day of the Idiots asks all these questions and answers then - surprisingly and frighteningly.
