Film Description: 

Among flowers and grass
Like a slow snake
Maybe a cloud
Maybe some rainfall
Has simply carried you
Has whispered your name

Where will you fall cruel,
eternal darkness,
deadly embrace ?

In the mildness of the air
You were already lurking
You were already crawling
Following us

In our flesh and in our bones
You sneaked in like a poison
Such a foreign body

Where will you spread tears,
Suffering matter,
You vengeful atom ?

Where will you burn, you hell,
You dark matter,
Incendiary atom?
