In an age in which to live the present moment is likely to take second place, compared to the desire to show and perform, some are ready to sell the soul in order to achieve fame. The same happens to our protagonist, director of a theatrical company in disarray. Like the well-known Dr. Faust, he says he is willing to sacrifice everything to have the reputation, denied him by the failures of his company, struggling with a unthinkable Hamlet. Upon hearing these words, Satan appears in person, in the role of a cleaner, able to seduce the director, promising success and triumph. The pact with the devil is signed with a handshake, and then the show goes on stage. A colossal flashy and gleaming work manifests itself, an excessive Hamlet Show, as showy as it is distant from the idea of the original Shakespearean. The director, dismayed, senses that he was deceived: now his name is on everyone's lips, but because he is covered with ridicule. In taking away his soul, the Devil himself murmurs the Hamletic doubt, adapted to our days: being or appearing, this is the dilemma.
