The Man Who Lived in Sorcy Wood
One day, the statue of the Virgin Mary spoke . . .
In a town of speaking statues and amusement arcades, a town with a conscious hunger for material success and an unconscious thirst for miracles, a man leaves his job and his home and goes to live in nearby Sorcy Wood.
After years of bitter resignation to his lowly position in the church, the local parish priest discovers that God has given him a mission - to fell Sorcy Wood and erect an airport to bring pilgrims to that isolated shrine from all over the world.
After years of building up his empire of gambling and snooker emporiums, the local businessman discovers a way to truly immortalize his name: to fell Sorcy Wood and erect the largest holiday camp ever imagined.
All that stands in their way, apart from each other, is the lone figure of the man who refuses to leave Sorcy Wood . . .
