8 women decide to abandon their current lives as mothers, wives and lovers in order to go to an island where they hope to find their ideal man. “Limbo Limbo Travel” is a tale of women trapped in the patriarchal desire which imposes on them the necessity of defining their identity solely through their relationships. The comic book aesthetic and the intense soundtrack aim for a campy externalization of the masculine optics and destruction of social structures. It turns out that even Mother Nature favors men and won’t allow women to free themselves from the limiting thoughts of an ideal, happily-ever-after relationship.
