Laurent Vicomte is considered to be the slowest author in the entire history of comic strips.
For almost 12 years, hundreds of thousands of readers have been awaiting his next album, the sequel to the mythical first volume of Sasmira published in 1997.

The aim of the film is to use this unique editorial adventure to explore the connection the artist maintains with reality. Focusing on the idea of creation and limits, it explores the paths that have to be taken in order to make an ideal a reality, and to embody an imagined work as well as possible.
