There is a news agency specializing in war coverage. The editors are young, successful, unscrupulous. They have no conception of what peace might feel like anymore.
Marco, a performance artist specializing in violence and destruction, is working on a sound artwork. The others jet from appointment to appointment. War times are high-times. And at the moment, high-times are constant. The competition is tough. At the moment, a war of pictures rages. In times of crisis, the market value of reports that divide the world into good and evil increases. At the same time, the question arises about to the authenticity of the pictures. Images of fake corpses lead to real revenge. Thus, the media apparatus is part of the entire war machinery.
