A man finds a heart-shaped cookie on the street. After eating it, his nose starts swelling until it explodes. The poor man wanders around pondering on his sadness, when suddenly he finds a box of “second-hands”. He abandons his mutilated head, which will later be picked up by a girl…When the man goes back home, no one accepts his new look: such rejection leads him to remove his new head and kill himself…The girl picks up this second head as well and takes it home.
