The city looks grave. A flock of gulls travels across . Their squawks fill the air. It’s quite haunting. The city manifests signs of abandonment. Mountains of garbage are seen among buildings rising as high and above. The camera stops in front of a sign that reads ‘Beirut City Harbor. The stage is now lit. It is an extension of the harbor’s platform. The video remains as an active city background. BEIRUTIS lie on the floor asleep on their suitcases. Most of them look worn out, filthy and signs of physical illness are evident on their skin. LISA, a small female robot, hovers in the air while looking at the Beirutis. She takes a quick round scanning them with her laser eyes.
