This video is a drama about two brothers, Pierrot and Johnny, living in a low-income neighborhood without their mother. By organizing a robbery, the brothers try to escape their lives and make their dreams of acquiring happiness and money come true. The end of their dreams coincides with the failure of the robbery and the death of one of the two brothers. Why did life give us so little? Is it possible to succeed when you are born to lose? The universe of desolation that the two brothers inhabit is well portrayed and the video, as a whole, is moving.
