I don’t remember clearly when it all started. Probably the day after that lorry driver somewhere drove over a five years old girl, back and forth. I remember I looked at the CCTV of the scene. You could barely see anything, really. There was just a confused mix of coloured dots, hardly distinguishable, but still, it was happening. Back. And forth. All I could see. The day after I watched the video, when I went out of the house, I noticed something had changed. It wasn’t me. It was around me.
As an entire city – or maybe is it the whole world? – starts to disappear under a supernatural fog, a little community sees its bonds slowly deteriorating. Surrounded by shadows and vanishing visions, when exactly do we start losing balance?
