The film invites the viewer to a sensory journey of synchronising with the rhythms of a disaster with real-time hysteria and modern surveillance technology. Whilst Brussels heals from its collective wounds of the 2016 attacks, the use of internet-sourced public CCTV footage and critical sleuthing of the data from the attacks are surveyed through the testimony of a poet in anguish and a gong master probing therapeutic application of the sound to heal trauma.
