- If they kill me, who’s gonna get you out of here?
- Whoever kills you... Move!

«No, I don’t remember, or have any scars to remind me, or photographs, or something forgotten in my pockets.»

«I never understood why death smelled like honeysuckle... and was always heading West. I'll get you out of this city. Either dead or alive...»

«Sometimes I see them in the distance... sliding down the hills, heading West...They kill each other over a drop of water... or they get killed by Patrols.»

«I often see her face... floating to me, from the dark. I turn to meet her but it’s late... The sun has set, the night comes fast and she's not there...»

«A metal soldier blocks my way. I tell him some story and he lets me pass. That’s where I find everyone again but without names... Night time is the best time to run.»

«Now, I'm miles from home... in a country that seems foreign. In a few minutes, I may wake up... or be found lying dead, on the side of the road.»

«The river is still far, and time's running ... I have no watch, but Ι can sense it… besides, watches aren’t made to measure this kind of time.»

«They say that beyond the river, and in the valley of death, seven angels, pray for those who escape the city...»

«We are both tormented by the same questions: "Where am I from? Where am I going? How long have I got to live?" Does it matter anymore?»

Morning Patrol (1987)


A woman travels alone, through a destroyed and abandoned city. She wants to pass the Forbiden Zone and get to the Sea... Deceptive traps lurk everywhere. The Morning Patrol is guarding and they are on her trail.

Electronic voices warn the nonexistent citizens to desert the city. The communications system is working, theaters are projecting films, and familiar faces of older times fill the television screens...

She is approached by one of the few survivors. Yet he is one of the men who guard this city now. He will help her to get where she wants. That place from where no one has ever returned, to claim that exists. "The Sea"...

Having a fractured memory in common, they will come close to one another.

Together, they will try to recall the past and make some sense out this catastrophe.

A story of love in an unbearable world, surrounded by violence and death...

What point can it have?
