After the Great War, the few survivors huddle together in the post-apocalyptic paradise of the Dome. There they continue to worry about inflation, interior furnishing and the hordes of mutant frog-people waiting at the gates, eager to devour their children. Despite the danger, the children of Carl venture outside the Dome and confront the Enemy.

A young woman works as an exotic dancer in a bar. She recalls an incident from her childhood in which she was physically abused by a male visitor. This inner journey brings back painful memories, including the obsessive image of a hat. Black-ink drawings, spare and rapidly executed, flow together in a succession of troubling and striking metamorphoses.
