Helium by Eché Janga


A criminal realises he is just another link in the universal chain, an uncomfortable revelation in his line of business.

After he experiences a moment of revelation on the island of Texel, criminal Frans Weeling realises he is but a mere link in the vast chain of the universe. Although this notion enlightens him, it conflicts with both his own perspective on life and his position in the underworld.
