This book relates of the use of arsenic as a stimulus by people living in the high Alps, back in the old days. The story is told in two ways. One fictional that tempts us to believe this could still be common, yet illegal, practise today and a second way that is more factional.
In the fictional section photographs by Simon and found and historical footage are combined. My task was to make them match to dissolve the differences in atmosphere. Only then can this story be told convincingly.
