The True Story of the Unkown Soldier follows a pulp novelist turned infantryman who, driven mad amidst the trenches of WWI, becomes tormented by visions of his own seedy creations. His feverish journey through dazzling dreamscapes and surreal scenarios lays bare his tortured psyche.

In The National Razor, a soldier returns from war a shattered man. Drowning himself in drink, he wanders the streets of a Paris that no longer feels familiar to him. Swept up in mysterious machinations too strange and vast for him to understand, he slowly pieces it all together - but his time is running out. At once a visceral depiction of the trauma wrought by war and a powerful denunciation of the death penalty and France's iconic guillotine.
