A Los Angeles fairy tale doomed to become a cynical tragedy. Stand-up comedian Henry, a self-proclaimed “The Ape of God”, and Ann, an opera diva, are madly in love with one another. So passionately and earnestly that they dedicate a duet to their love. Every night, Henry’s devastating humour “kills” the audience, while Ann’s voice guides and “saves” them. Henry quips that humour is one of the few opportunities to tell the truth without getting killed. After the birth of their gifted daughter Annette, the world changes genres; envy, resentment, bad publicity, the tabloids, #MeToo and evil born of jealousy. So may we start?
