STORY: A long line of forest trees, countless branches and leaves sway gently back and forth in the morning breeze. Scattered sounds of birds mingle with the rustling of the trees. Two duelists in the forest – determined they pick up their pistols. The almost synchronized steps of the two opponents pull them further and further apart, their faces, their bodies and the atmosphere around them become more and more charged with tension – both stop. At the same time, the duelists turn to face each other. They raise their pistols. Their hands tremble. Their limbs tremble. They stretch the weapons as far as possible away from their bodies. The tension is palpable. The trembling of the hands is transferred to the pistols. Suddenly, a deafening “SHOOT!” breaks the silence. A pistol hangs from a trembling hand. The shot echoes among the fluttering sounds of birds. The young second stares in horror at the two duelists. Finally he looks down at himself: the smoking pistol hangs in his own hand….

STORY: A man on his sofa, in a hangover mood, and yet an inner determination speaks from him. In front of him on the couch glass table: pills and a bottle of whiskey. He reaches for the knife and grinds, smashes, chops the pills into powder – just then a loud agonizing noise drills its way down to him on the sofa from above. The loud drilling noises from the apartment above, however, pull him further and further out of his focus. The glass table in front of him vibrates and shakes. He screams and shouts. Finally, he has only one last goal: to calmly wipe the pill powder onto a piece of paper, and to let the pill powder trickle into the whiskey. And after that, to put the whiskey bottle to his lips, to close his eyes and raise it to drink…
