Outline

In a large abandoned housing complex, winds blow through a dystopian world while black wild dogs wander around. Trash left behind by former residents scatters across the ground, sirens roar in the background, and graffiti covers the walls, all adding to the unsettling atmosphere that permeates the film. The artist describes the ruins as “a modern Pompeii,” referring to the ancient Roman town destroyed by a volcanic eruption.
