Can we start again from the beginning? This is what Gaia, the Mother Earth, asks herself on a given occasion. She has lost interest in her last creation, the people. Zeus, Mythos and Prometheus also try their hand at making people but, like Gaia, are dissatisfied with the result. So you leave the project to lounge around the pool or play Jenga. When the gods are distracted, with the people multiply unnoticed, hundreds become thousands and then millions. After some time, they completely destroyed Gaia's creation. Myth decides that people must go, all of them. But they always find an excuse to postpone their extinction.

At some point Gaia must intervene. Is there mercy? Or has the experiment of creation finally failed? A comically mythological ride from the invention of humanity to its end, with illuminating notes and weighty footnotes.
