A parable about human striving for the absolute that may often take the form of a brutal rat race inspired with Jacek Gaj’s copperplate Ladders. Its heroes climb higher and higher trying to reach a colourful mirage that appears from time to time. The aim will never be attained, consecutive ‘ladders’ only enable them to move on to the next levels of their race. What is left is the toil of Sisyphean hike.
