The story takes place in a small village in Finland. A new Miller has just arrived and everybody find him very strange. He’s howling at the moon.
He will soon have all the inhabitants of the village against him, except for a handful of characters with whom he will make friends …
Using different points of view and alternating perspectives between big and small, our “Howling Miller " tells, through furious, black humour and a touch of despair, how a community succeeds, by fear or stupidity, in creating its own monsters !
" Pure artistic joy. To the point, bold, and inventive. With irresistible, funny scenes, and moments of pure emotion … " ALSACE - 11 fév. 2008
" It seems to me necessary to affirm, over and over again, the right to be different, and to fight the standardization which is endangering our society " Martial Anton.
