A dystopian city becomes visible. The streets are empty and decaying. The camera zooms into a shop window over which a luminous lettering flickers. With a scratchy tone, a kind of hologram appears on a table standing in the middle of the room. A small bear becomes visible on the hologram table. As a raindrop rises off the table surface and glides upwards, the bear awakens from its rigidity to life. He moves backwards, running in slow motion through a forest that slowly regenerates itself from the destroyed hologram. Drops rise off the table and the hologram transforms into an idyllic forest. Finally, the bear comes to rest on a meadow and falls asleep peacefully.
