Go back to the future
A short story about the future
In a future world not different from the one we used to live, started falling human beings from the sky. Who are they? What do they want from us?
The head of the State
The Governor will be forward-thinking enough to understand how to prevent this from becoming a crisis, or he will use it at his advantage? People will realize there are their nephews and nieces the people, the aliens we’re speaking about?
We imagined the illustrations for this story as cards, to be played by some characters. From a glove to a cat, each of them will lead us through the story.

The Future falls from the sky
This is the first part, where an ‘alien’ drops from the sky. After many years of waiting to migrate to the past, searching for a better life, the future falls just to discover a bitter reality.
Discover the beautiful Villa Clichy
Villa Clichy, a wonderful place with a view on the falling ‘aliens’. Please, follow Vanessa on the tour of this horrendous place, where people can shoot to the ‘aliens’ coming from the past. Do they suffer?
A glove to handle the past
Sometimes a small object can lead to a fateful series of events. That’s exactly what is going to happen here, in A glove to handle the past, where a small theft leads to the encounter with a nervous taxi driver. Why he was so nervous, was he an alien?
We followed a glove, and through it we arrived to the famous explosion. Read how continues the story here!
An alien got an interview?
An alien goes on TV, but it goes a bit differently than the presenter expected. Read The Interview to understand what it’s all about.
Change the message!
The message left in the past put at risk an entire population, sons, grandsons and grand-daughters. How can it be stopped? Read more about it in The Message, where you’ll also discover the Gate of the Ancestors.
The Head in the Parliament
In this part we will get closer to the Head of the state. He’s an idiot, but he discovered how to speak to the bellies of people. He’s a wizard, ready to mix fear and arrogance, stupidity and lack of knowledge to have the ultimate effect: control!
Kill the aliens!
In this part you will see how everything started, with the Head asking to open the aliens’ hunt.
The Parliament has to vote and has to do it right, otherwise there’s no way to survive for the people falling from the sky.
A cat’s decision
The destiny of the whole future resides in the paws of a cat. This cat is in the Parliament when they have to decide between the life or death of the so-called aliens. The future will be wiped out, once and for all?
Independence day gives all the time the families need for chatting in front of their TVs. In fact, everything continues as always. Read The independence day, now.
A girl to end it
A sixteen-year-old girl stands in front of the Head, her smoking gun still in her hands. How is going to end this story?
