Lungs is the story of H and F, a couple we follow through a conversation, or more precisely several conversations concerning the idea of having a baby in a world where natural disasters, familial neurosis and the multiplicity of models become pressure and fear facing the future. The writing explains the story of a couple in a simple language through ellipsis, challenging the audience. Duncan Macmillan enquire with his text the concept of commitment and responsibilities with humour and sensibility.
