By the multiple award-winning artist, this European graphic novel is in English. The story is framed by a boy's two contrasting dreams of Utopia.

The first, a majestic otherworldly city filled with surreal amusements; the second, a mundane but familiar working class town.

The dramatic shift of the child's fantasies results from a remarkable offer accepted by the people of his town. The factories that are the lifeblood of the town are about to close, despite efforts by the striking workers. When the owner, the aged founder of a multimillion-dollar empire, suddenly dies, the town expects little help from his heir, an invalid granddaughter. In fact, the enigmatic lady also has a dream. Her determination and money create a new town, 'The Town That Didn't Exist'.
