Born with a strange affliction, Lothar is forced to live alone in an underground bunker. He does it to protect the world and those around him, for whenever he sneezes, nearby objects will explode.
Living with kid gloves, there’s only one thing Lothar holds sacred to him. And it’s on this unfortunate day, he breaks his beloved toaster from his mother.
It’s cause enough to venture outside as he seeked out the manufacturer’s address to claim the lifetime warranty. With protective gear in place, of course.
It’s a small step for Lothar, but with giant repercussion for mankind.
