The Mechanics

15 min.DK/Short fiction

A collective of ideologically motivated mechanics. They steal expensive luxurious cars, to bring them on trial in a court staged at a car workshop. The luxury cars are seen as symbols of decadence and uneven prosperity and must therefore by judgment suffer destruction. One of the Mechanics, a young woman by the name of Sandy has a romantic and secret relationship to Pepo, a talking 10 cylinder white Lamborghini Gallardo. Because of the collectively agreed upon ideal; to hunt down and fight every luxury symbol of the road, Sandy goes against the collective's core philosophy and her political and ideological affiliation is put to the test.
