A death-row inmate becomes a darling of the media (and the tobacco conglomerates) when he demands his right to a final cigarette in a smoke-free prison. Meanwhile, a little girl accuses a petty bureaucrat of sexual perversion when she catches him sneaking a cigarette. In this world where children rule tyrannically, a cigarette could lead him to the electric chair ...Young French author, Benoit Duteurtre, creates a world disconcertingly close to our own, yet wildly askew in this daring and antic comedy.
