A treatise of the human animal no. 38: HEARTACHE

 A treatise of the human animal no. 38: HEARTACHE is a comical and life-affirming depiction of the human being and its eternal tendency to have its heart broken. In eight standalone chapters, we meet the patients, at the Sanatorium for Heartache, in their assiduous attempt to cure themselves of this terrible disease. Meanwhile, on Antarctica, we join the penguin Edgar on an epic journey, as he traverses snowy plains and stormy mountains, in an attempt to once again be reunited with the love of his life.
