Flatlife

Hanging a painting on the wall, building a house of cards, doing the laundry, and watching TV: utmost innocent and harmless actions in the daily lives of four ordinary people.
But of all the bad luck, these people had to live next to each other.

In FLATLIFE, hanging a painting on the wall becomes a quite hazardous operation, houses of cards seem subject to Murphy's Law, doing the laundry requires special skills in the field of ethology, and watching TV turns out to be a life-threatening activity.
Sometimes a far friend is worth more than a good neighbour.
