A magician addicted to cocaine faces the dilemma of exchanging his best friend for one more dose. There is always a moment of reflection, a last chance, an inkling of redemption, before a person falls without remedy to the abyss. In "Floppy", this is manifested by Flavio the magician through the best and only friend with whom he's left, a stuffed rabbit with whom he lived the best of his years. In the middle of this dilemma, of this physical and moral intoxication which corrodes Flavio, is Floppy himself who tries to make him see reason, and demonstrate that there is still a way out, that there is no possible life existing if they are separated from one another.... "Floppy" is a short film which seeks to leave a bitter smile, a nostalgic sensation, establishing a connection with its universal problems: friendship, dreams, defeat, hope, death, magic....
