* Brief description of the film:
The main character tells the story of her death in voice over:
The story describes a city that is about to be poisoned by “Them”. “Them” is an unidentified group, which remains mysterious throughout the entire story. In a metaphorical way, it represents the power, the so-called leaders; those who have decided to kill the citizens.
- The main ambiguity that is raised is: why are they trying to kill the citizens?
As the story unfolds, the main character remembers her murderer. As a child, he had been her neighbour and was deeply in love with her. He later became one of the undercover militia responsible for the poisoning of the city. Coincidently, he ended up being the one chasing after her in the city.
- Why does he want to kill her? Why? Can’t they live side by side even if their ideas no longer coincide?
The film is a criticism of the non-democratic contexts in which there is no tolerance for different beliefs.
