Additional Info

Lily is an unhappy magician's assistant who is tired of being sawed in half by the drunken Magus, the wreckage of a once charismatic magician with a voice like John Carradine, while Monica, whose job is to huddle in the other part of the coffin and wiggle her feet for the audience, feels it's a great privilege to sleep with Magus and the rabbits. Lily has murder in her heart but Magus makes her wonder if she is not just somebody he's called from the audience and hypnotized. Mysterious and funny.
