The TV shows war footage and a Biblical princess asks her father: Is it true that yesterday's Babel and today's Iraq are the same? The video artist Gérard Allon responds with a flurry of images from Middle-East wars of the past 15 years, excerpts from feature films (Hiroshima - My Love, and other) and TV ads. In the staged plane, he converses with his eldest daughter. The director rejects playing Messiah and perpetration of good by evil means while being a member of a nation forced to protect its existence in battles. The director foretells his nation a gloomy future but he does it with humor and irony.
