Using archival images provided by INA, Lieux Fictifs proposed that the artists create a six minute film.
The story is written as a monologue, short phrases are printed on the screen describing a man's chaotic getaway from the city.

The earth's surface is burning, war is raging.
A man flees the street and takes refuge underground, where he waits for the dawn.

« PEOPLE RIPPED APART,
LIKE TATTERED OLD SHIRT,
LIKE TATTERED RAGS,
I WAS TRYING TO FIND MY OWN WAY,
THROUGH THE STREETS OF THE DESTRUCTION ZONE,
I AM ALIVE.»
