Description

Follow Hector as he sets off to uncover nuggets of universal wisdom on time.

Poor Hector. Tempus fugit, and our intrepid psychiatrist is not feeling quite as young as he used to.

His patients are concerned with time too. One feels she’s always in a hurry, as if there’s a clock ticking in her tummy – she would like time to slow down. But there’s also a boy who wishes time would hurry along and turn him into an adult. And a third patient measures his remaining years in the number of dogs he’ll have time to own.

Hector feels he must find a solution to the problem of time and so, of course, another journey is required.
