A protagonist cuts down a lamppost with a chainsaw. The operation lasts several minutes before it tumbles to the ground.

In the roar the lightbulbs shatter and instantly plunge us into darkness. The darkness left by the absence of light allows a shadowy zone to emerge where one can from now on better observe the night.
