A couple is making out on the seashore, a monster observes them from the water, a man kills two other monsters and the movie begins: a list of names, a list of friends, a list of monsters... Theend, the suicide of the underground culture.

“The movie was inspired by a legendary figure: Vincent Price. I wanted to depict the end of underground culture with a B-movie, a genre and a language that have always belonged to me. The concept is that there is a beginning, a sort of prologue, and then the movie, with the closing credits where I thank all those people, artists and not, who collaborated with the btomic club, a club in La Spezia that closed in 2015. At the btomic, every artist who passed that way left a mark; a true friendship also arose with most of them, and it is being born again in the afterlife. We are ready to return... more monstrous than ever!”
