"Silent" graphic novel "Saturn's Circle" follows the destinies and adventures of the two LAWYERS, working for the Bank Corp. During an attempt to envict the Poor Familiy - THE GRANPA, THE GRANDMA and THE GIRL - The Banking Duo gets into trouble caused, quite possibly, and possibly quite accidentally, by The Girl's child-curse. The Duo is drawn into a surrealist, hard-to-define universe of apparitions and quite unpleasant corporal experiences, reaping the fruits of their professional work in a circle of carmic relationships, wandering the intertwined paths laid down by cause and effect. Meanwhile, The Girl, her Family literally thrown into the street, discovers her own violin-playing virtuosity which completely defines her upcoming destiny.
In a clash between the polarities of the calculated and the innocent, in a sardonic dance of opposites, there emerge the questions meant for each and every one of us:
Who wins? Who learns more? Who becomes better?
Try to escape... if You have nothing better to do.
