In 1978 the 231st day the narrator's words unwrap the facts, the rumours and the assumptions around the forgotten incident of a movie theater set intentionally ablaze. A struggle of remembering and reflecting, around the night of the incident, the following days and the fire's painful aftermath. A contest between the comfort of storytelling and the unbearable-ness of a catastrophe. Obscure imagery as a unity that forms a black surface for words to appear, as nothingness projected on its screen, on the cinema screen, or in one's mind. A monolith of unknown.
