Revolution in the Elbow of Ragnar Agnarsson Furniture Painter

$57.80-$107.30

A sonic journey through the rise and fall of Elbowville (a small community within Ragnar Agnarsson’s body), where a love triangle develops, shaking Elbowville to its core. The creation of a 'prosperity machine' ultimately contributes to shattering the peace in the sweet little community. How does the pragmatic, highly sexual (and possibly slightly evil) Mayor Manuela deal with the crisis? The prosperity machine does indeed create wealth for the Elbowvillians, but can the good times last and at what cost?
