Sef Peeters is lying on the floor, wrapped up in a sack of white elastic fabric. He is thrashing about wildly, while the sound of an alarm clock can be heard. The title seems to point to an attempt to escape from the claustrophobic environment in which Peeters finds himself. The work has an oppressive and distressing effect, due to the almost tangible urge to escape from the suffocating sack.
