Synopsis/Details: 

This is a symbolic telling, of being hung by a thread.

A man is imprisoned in a cell, and is brought out every day only to entertain a king.
His very life depends on succeeding.

There is nothing, or very little to spark up his imagination.

On this day, we witness, how he narrowly escapes decapitation, upon succeeding to make the
king laugh.

Tomorrow is another day.

The Writer: Ville Nummenpää

I'm a screenwriter and a novelist. Three official credits on IMDB (There should be a couple more, who knows who updates them?). I have one 12-ep. TV-series to my name, two stage plays, five books (three for kids, two for grown-ups), and various stints here and there. Episode here, a few sketches there, short movies and short stories, etc. I do comedy, cause I'm not funny. But why stop there? I also want to do horror, action, science fiction... in one word, entertainment. I live in Finland, I'm sure everyone is familiar with the town of Riihimäki? Always happy to connect with like-minded, passionate story tellers, of which there are plenty here. Go to bio
