Christophe, an 11-year-old farm boy neglected by his father, mysteriously starts leaning to the side, to the point of falling. He falls everywhere, all the time, and even sends the family tractor to scrap. Far from attracting his father’s attention, he triggers his anger... and harvests a metal corset. An instrument of torture for a child with so much energy, and all this to prevent him from leaning.
Too bad, if he does not lean, it is the world that will lean! Christophe then discovers a superpower of imagination: that of tipping over the horizon, and sending everything waltzing ...
Mr K works hard in a cramped office. He produces advertising posters for "Pastagel", a big company peddling a miraculous product to keep your hair fabulous all day long.

One night he is visited by a strange apparition, the spitting image of Mr K with a face striped like a tiger. From this moment, his organised existence is sent into disarray.
