The film centres around a single excerpt from a news video, taken off the internet. The clip is of a family hiding behind a wall in a neighbourhood in Beirut, Lebanon. The neighbourhood has become a warzone. Over time the compressed video is slowed down, enlarged, and gets a new soundscape. Additional dimensions are revealed in the scene, and a troubling contrast between imagery and content is created, leading to an anxiously destabilising affect in the viewer.
