"Prince in a Pastry Shop" is a seemingly humorous story about happiness. Because "with happiness there are only troubles," says the Not-So-Little Prince, and he multiplies the examples of these troubles. His interlocutor is Prickly Pear, the embodiment of carefree, light-heartedness, simple joy of life, but at the same time a lively, intelligent mind that can make the Prince take a back step in his conversation. This philosophical parable about a couple eating cakes in a cafe touches upon fundamental issues that are close to everyone - the elusiveness of happiness, the fact that we are not always able to perceive it, let alone experience it as fully as possible.

We are little miracles. Tiny ones, even, who never stop shedding our skins, over and over. The world settles in our sweat. Alone, though, with no memory of what drove us into this life that jealous people claim is ours. Forgotten, skins fall one after another, like caresses that—much moreso than our cells, in truth—create them, these skins, which are neither ours nor those of others, regardless of the energy that we spend, at night, exchanging them.

Humans who drown in social networks, feed on each other's ruminants, but they never experience satiety

Have you ever wondered how you remember an emotionally difficult event? How emotions influenced your perception then? What sounds remained in your memory? Was the flow of events slow, or perhaps the time seemed to stop?
Were you blinded by the morning sun? Or maybe your eyes were searching for less significant elements? How do you remember behaviours of others? Conversation, gestures? “Lack” attempts to revisit an emotionally difficult event. It portraits about an hour of father and son’s lives, going to the vet to save a dog.

Alix, a passionate young florist is having an emotional day with the constant stream of strange customers coming in and out of her shop.
