The video was filmed in Vietnam, the USA, and Sweden between December 93 and October 96.

It ends by explaining that 6000 people are living in tunnels under Manhattan. How do you know the war is really over?
The video is a reflection over how responsibility and guilt are related to each other, and how easy one can change to the other.
The video also includes private conversations about how easy and true it can be to make certain agreements in one relationship and how wrong they can be in another.
