Chrysalis deals with the economic and moral crisis of contemporary society and the severe crisis that creeps up on us as we age. Like in a game of mirrors, and from the first page of the prologue, Carlos Giménez introduces us to a couple of his doubles, or look-alikes. The first one, Uncle Pablo, will be immediately recognizable to his fans. The second, his close buddy Raúl, is new and sets off a long series of reflections and misunderstandings about the miseries of creation and the limitations of old age. There are two options, each incarnated by one of his doubles: decline or death.
