This work is the first purposefully produced video that is a work of its own. It includes both personally shot by me and found footage. It consists of five scenes, which in different ways penetrate into each other, playing out the drama of constant tension and its removal.

— To speak in the most direct manner means to speak to the Lord.
— No equality, no justice. This means humility and mercy.
— Be vigilant, for there is no death.
— The Lord neglects my lack of faith.
— Regarding the first point, there is a necessity to speak so and in no other way.

Kateryna Berlova directly participated in the production of this work.
