A man sitting on a chair is waiting for someone giving to him a glass of water to start a weird erotic game, which involves other surreal characters.

 

Notes

From a surrealistic and ironical perspective, “69”, the first episode of the series with the same name, is a fictitious theatrical representation of orgasm by a couple not well defined. Also, the peculiarity of the series is the strict observation of some rules:

- The story must have opposite situations or perspectives as suggested by the title.

- Every episode has to be filmed with a fixed camera at the centre of the scene.

- No camera movements, zoom and cuts in the editing are allowed.

- there is always the role of the waiter who introduces the scene as a kind of historicus.
