SYNOPSIS

⁣⁣A foreigner arrives in a new city. He doesn't speak the language of the locals and doesn't look like them: instead of two, he has several arms, like an octopus. He seems to approach others and even offers them his arms. Whenever he wants, the foreigner can rip off an arm and it grows back. Over time, the octopus man becomes part of the city, until the day he learns the new language.
