Ignorance is bliss, or so hopes Antoine, the lead character in this stinging satire, who has had it with being brilliant and deeply self-aware. He vows to denounce his intelligence by any means necessary--in order to become "stupid" enough to be a happy, functioning member of society in this dark and hilarious odyssey.
