A novel about disorientation and loss of meaning.

Two men in an isolated warehouse. Two mercenaries who have apparently found meaning in their lives by joining a great cause are given custody of a hostage. The silence of their sponsor and the disintegration of their commitment pushes them to gradually leave the warehouse. What happens when we are deprived of our role, when we find ourselves aimlessly in an open world? What do we do with this freedom when we are a little paranoid and armed?

Open World is a playful fiction that takes you into the Beckettian adventures of two beautiful losers.
