Desolation and silence. The mist rises slowly amongst the ruins of a city, making everything more hostile and ghostly. A little girl plays in her room. In front of her, the jigsaw puzzle of an enchanted castle while rust, rubble and devastation surround her. The disarming silence makes it impossible for the girl to take a rest, but as soon as she hears her brother Yuri screaming... the nightmare begins. Weird characters with green overalls and anti-gas masks zip through the dark alleys of the building. An operating theatre comes to life. Latex hands and scalpels go down on Yuri's defenceless body, and suddenly silence takes over the whole scene, again, returning the girl and the other thousands of victims to the miserable reality in which we've all locked them up: oblivion.
