Can you imagine growing up without a sense of humour?
In Marius K’s country everyone has their sense of humour removed at birth.
Uh huh. Except for Marius K. And, of course, The Funnies.
People who somehow escaped the ‘zappers’ and fled into the forest. Determined to keep humour alive!
Will Marius K find them – or will the scarifying Fun Police find him first?
