"Domestication" shows a peculiar dependence between a man and the animals he owns. The protagonist - a collector of exotic reptiles - lives in a flat cluttered with aquariums. Surrounded by the luxuriant plants he once planted, each day he attentively looks after his animals yet strictly controlling their behavior. A small caiman that he brings home will unexpectedly disturb the inner harmony that the man managed to build.
