Cross the ruins of the factory, remembering repeated gestures. Hear the voices of workers gathered in the yard and the silence of unplugged machines. Go through the city, in the mud of construction sites, leaving in search of work. Strike the stone and the brick, watch things slowly collapsing. Spot places, get there, change the locks and turn the electricity on. Gather at night, light a fire, build new shelters. Telling always the same story: the one that keeps men standing.
