The background of the concept is a part of the book "Hiroshima mon amour" from Marguerite Duras.
The inner strife of the main-actress, the past that always catch up with her, lost in the frivolity of the present. But what is behind of that. What is hiding? What is covered?

"And I call you, also if you are dead. And one day,
All of a sudden on one day,
I scream

I scream as loud as pigeons do.
Then they close me in the cellar in order to punish me." (Marguerite Duras, Hiroshima mon amour)
