'Scene A small room with a mattress in one corner. There is a dirty bed sheet on the mattress. The whole atmosphere is lit by a blue fluorescent light, covered in the ceiling by a cage. Suddenly the door of the room, which is located in the back, will open and a MAN will be thrown in. He tries to stand up, but he feels pain in his stomach, so he bends and tries to bear it.'
