9de9565c83 poster

As Paul serenely prepares his daily breakfast, the ordinariness of his morning routine is interrupted by an unexpected encounter: Mister Egg, the well-mannered egg which is being cooked by Paul, engages him in a philosophical conversation from the bottom of the frying pan. On one hand Mister Egg supports the equality between him and Paul; on the other hand Paul claims his superiority as a human over an egg. When Mister Egg wins the philosophical debate, pride and hunger take over Paul, who, right after having recognised his rhetorical defeat, mercilessly eats Mister Egg. Doing so, however, Paul chokes and collapses, pathetically dying.
Just as Mister Egg foresaw, Paul goes through in a transcendental journey across the universe and the Earth, which ends in a quiet house kitchen; an unlucky girl discovers it, to her detriment, while she’s preparing her breakfast: Paul, reborn as an egg, shamelessly approaches her.
