What are the first existential queries that lead us to question the absolute and consult teachers, parents, priests or older siblings?

The peculiar microcosm, a surprising sociological container, is the backdrop where these inquiries take place; it actually is a 'non-place' par excellence: the set of "The Passion of the Christ."
