A film about news, life, love and death. Four days in Vienna, four days in world news.
At home children are born, the dead are washed, or people simply wait for the bus. At the same time television broadcasts very different images. A ferry sinks off the Philippines, Sadam Hussein decorates his soldiers with medals, and in Vienna a war breaks out that in reality never took place.
