4 Hours

It's a sunrise. A boy is standing on the rooftop, looking at the city above. He's silent (he's making a decision).

He comes back home, sits down at the table. Tern on the answering machine, and listening to voices messages. Over his shoulder we see he's constructing a bomb. The timer is counting down 4 hours.

Carrying the bomb under his arm he goes outside. The streets are still empty. He's coming through the streets, cross-roads, passing through tunnels. He gets onto the bridge. On the bridge he meets passers-by, he scares them and having fun. His laughter is histerical. He's proud of his power. He's spitts into the river, roars on the bridge. He stops, smokes a cigarette. He's looking into the camera, smiling. He hates the world, people. He's alone.
