Where Songs from the Second Floor envisages the apocalypse through the workings of a city, this shorter antecedent focuses on one 'ordinary' individual, who addresses viewers directly as he introduces the people and places that figure in his life. It's a compassionate yet savage indictment of human cruelty, complacency, conformism and alienation. It's often very funny, even as it's haunted by its creator's sheer horror at acts perpetrated against humans by other humans during the Holocaust.
