FEMME FATALE 
& The General Theory of Love

DESCRIPTION

When Love is found brutally torn to pieces and carelessly buried in the outskirts of the village, the Femme Fatale forensics team is on the scene. Despite the name and the village’s expectations, these clowns aren’t exactly up to the task in their vamp high heels. They don’t understand anything about love, so their approach to solving the case is completely trial-and-error; they pluck the creature’s wings and scorch it with their magnifying glasses. What was this love? Where and why did love happen? And, what killed it?
