New: The Suitcase, or: Degenerate Vertices

Lost in a sea of deceptions

Anna, in her mid-thirties, separated from her husband, arrives at Zurich airport late at night and accidentally takes a strange suitcase from the conveyor belt. A flood of blurred memories, associations, nightmares and erotic visions drives Anna on an odyssey through the night with the heavy piece of luggage, until she learns about the problem of degenerate corners from a mathematician in a bar.

Is there a connection between love and mathematics?
