A heroin addict waits for his next hit which will only temporarily relieve him from his everlasting pain. Moreover, living day to day for the next dose, he becomes physically sick and tired. In the midst of this, the dealers and middlemen mind their own business. Meanwhile, the junky dies a slow death as his spirit deteriorates, leaving this drug as his last link with reality. With a powerful sound track and an edgy text, this video creates a haunting atmosphere in which the growing tension becomes almost unbearable. The images flow and clash in an unstable universe where the pain is almost palpable until we reach the inescapable outcome for this hardened heroin addict; his dose allows him the opportunity to forget his illness only temporarily and to become enmeshed in a terrible cycle.
