Like light shining through a sea of white. - It feels like I'm swimming in milk. - Really? Well...

3.

one good thing is I’ve never heard blindness described as white. It’s black, right? It’s the absence of light. - So, that’s a good thing. - I guess. Yeah, sure it is. It means it’s not real blindness. Anyway, it’s too fast. Blindness is slow, right? What you have is psychosomatic. Some kind of nervous thing. Just a second here. Is this where we’re going? Okay, so... Why don’t you just get out here. - Walk to the curb. - All right. - I got it. - Walk to your left. Straight at. Hey! Hey! Look! Help! Help! Help! Don't worry. I got you. - You okay?

Fine. .This way. . what it considers to be it's duty to protect the population by all means.. sir. no. because I've just gone blind. . then you'll have to take me. This vehicle is for infected.I got it.

provisionally known as the "White Sickness" we're relying. The decision to temporarily quarantine all those infected. An epidemic of blindness.. represents. to stem any future contagion.... would play a video in a quarantine for the blind. that’s scary. You’re lucky you can’t see it..19... Let me guess.. on the public spirit and cooperation of all citizens... Makes you question what kind of an idiot. an act of solidarity with the rest of the Nation.. Be assured that the isolation in which you find yourselves.. You’ll never believe where they brought us. was not taken without careful consideration.. .. this guy’s voice is already driving me crazy. It’s a video? Well. above any personal considerations.

Anyway. . No..I want it..You’re right.We shouldn’t tell that I can see.. We’ve got to get you out of here.Here. .. They’ll never believe it.Really? All right. . but I'm fine! .Are you with me? .

Each ward is equipped with a phone for communication.All right.It's what I want. . .Echo! . You’d never get near enough to tell them.. Please.. it’s too late now. . go home. With that spirit of cooperation in mind. we ask everyone pay attention to the following simple instructions.

Well... That’s the asshole who’s responsible for all this.Doctor... or "ward representative". .. . ..where the food comes in. .... Number Three. and then another ward on the lower floor...... someone’s thinking. . .for people who.How do you know that? We explored a little before you came in.21. how many wards are there? . Each ward shall elect a captain. Four? Three? Row two.Yes. for communication with the outside world.. . There’s two other wards on this floor. sorry. Each patient shall choose his own bed.Number Two. We chose this ward because it’s closest to the entrance. Five.It’s a corridor. ..

Son of a bitch who can steal from a blind man.. I’m gonna go to another room. as far away as possible from this son of a bitch.22.Damn yeah! If I hadn’t been decent and stopped to help you. ..They are fighting? Stop it now! Stop that! . . honey.Stop this! . Okay? We're on our own!

Security guard at a hotel. where are you? . because we don't have enough food. Are you all right? I’ve got you.32. I’m 7. Number Six.. make a left. I'm a receptionist at an ophthalmologist. Engineer. Left.Oh. I know your voice.. Straight. I forgot to say 7. . Also. if there’s no one there to answer it? We have a situation here in the blind ward. there's still my request from yesterday for a medical supply kit. Apparently you missed that.

There’s a few things I want to discuss. I like the warm feeling on my face. We’ve a guide line that connects all the wards to each other. We’re Ward One.33. I got it.. I’m going to need a team to go and see what's going on in there... We can thank her for that. The ceremonial fire was near the line. Remember that New Year’s when we went to the Shrine? There were so many people waiting in line.. That’s it.No.. You used to like it. They're absolutely disgusting. our bodies were warmed on one side. It was cold. When we got close to it. First of all.. welcome to the newcomers. There’s another point. It’s an innovation made by my wife. . The toilets. . The smell too.

I can give you an update. I don’t want to listen.34. there’s no soap.You hear that? .What? . And so. .... Would you happen to have an extra bed in your dorm? I have a radio. I guess it’s better than nothing. There’s no.. . Why? I can’t pretend.There’s not.Any bed in here? . Hello. There’s not as many stations as there used to be. It felt good! We didn’t even know each other that well.. But I guess. Hello.At least we save on the batteries. if you insist.. I don’t want to listen. . In the first 24 hours there .Please.

. proclaiming their general ignorance. as you know... How premature it was to talk of cures.. the helpless viewing public was subjected to seminars.. No pain. The first of the make shift quarantines. How more research was needed. the rumor says. But this decommissioned sanitarium didn't make ideal public relations.35.... Let’s organize a massive international medical conference. was decisive.. A sea of white. All the same. The Government's response. or so... with specialists from around the world.. We don’t yet know if this is. and endless roundtables... were hundreds of cases...that was published in "Infectious Disease International". of ophthalmologists and neurologists. And so for days and days. . ...

. no.No! No! . and with time.36.. A point that was at least once dramatically illustrated. my God! I’ve gone blind! Oh. Oblivious to the evidence all around them. please.. Stop struggle. That same day. and the constant coverage. But then reports came of a bus crash with 23 casualties. no! . stop. Oh. my God! Help me! Help me! Help me! Someone. that the disease was immune to bureaucracy. But people were terrified. as usual. No one could say if the disease was the cause of the accidents. please! Somebody! .Ma'am. and more funding.Shit! Shit! No. . two planes collided..Take him out of here! Weeks passed. the city was bored back to work. . What about the roads and traffic? Chaos.

Leave it there... And the traffic problems were solved. People decided to stay home. Or the blindness spread the panic. They coexist.. One can only imagine the inclined heads. . Why do they ask were they tears of joy or sorrow? Joy and sorrow are not like oil and water. the wide eyes. friends. Maybe. I need you to follow my voice. Like so many of you. And either the panic spread the blindness. the "Kingdom of the Blind" shrank to the circle of an AM radio. My fellow citizens. the tears. Casualties multiplied. And for the length of the song..37.. I have gone blind. maybe we need some music after all. supporters.. Ladies and gentleman.

Please? .We need some guidance. One person. .Why is I warned you? For follow some one.Stay in line. watch your step. The shovel you requested is waiting in the yard. please.Stay in line. Just come. . little man.Stay in line. please? Sir? . . Anyone attempting leave the premises will be corrected.Put it to the right. and as you do. Hello? Excuse me! Sir? Can we have some guidance. sir? Some one? . Come towards my voice. please. . Fuck! Attention.Hello? Excuse me. . Choose one person to come and collect it. . .38. Where is it? Straight ahead.Do not push! .Right ahead.

Good. stop. Good. turn right again. warmer. Warmer. Okay. Now.39. keep going forward. Next one’s the ground. You’re fine. Colder! Colder! Did you see that. Stop. Come this way. Stop. Okay. Oh. Sarge? Did you see that? The blind adapt quickly. Good. Keep coming. Okay. Now. Warmer. Turn to your right. colder. Okay. Stop. colder. colder. Go forward. Warmer. Warmer. keep coming. colder. That’s okay. That’s it. Very good. three newcomers . Yeah. Good. Ward Three? Today. stop. Okay. Now keep going forward.

so we’re all in the same position. were gunned down by the guards. I don’t wanna argue. Yes. All right? Good...40. like I was. takes one body.. I think that the best solution would be that..and they bury their own share. each ward.. So... right? Listen.. Our ward is full. Okay. The same here. there's the matter of food rationing. . . And then the job is quickly done. After they were turned away from yours.What do you mean our share? They're not ours. And I think the fair thing to do is that each ward takes a body. but some of them would have probably come to this ward. It seems that one of the wards is .. Now. takes turns with the shovel. I just wanna have these people buried..

So you wanna talk to our leader? . And I hereby declare myself the King of Ward Three. with a representative from each ward.. negotiate? Yeah? Well.That’s right. I'm the chosen representative from Ward One.Long live the king! . So. Otherwise we're gonna be at each other’s throats constantly. And I suggest that you people choose your own representative. yeah..Long live the king! .. Like in a diplomatic mission. . Yeah. I'm proposing that we put together some sort of committee. here we have a monarchy system. .41. I am. Who the fuck are you? Who the fuck are you? Excuse me? Yeah! Yeah! Who do you think you are? Giving all these orders.. taking more than their fair share. and.

You’re filthy. then why . Give me your clothes. will eat dinner before we think about getting. Okay. Come on.I don’t know why you think that.Don’t lie to me.. eat.42.. or burying any dead. . You gotta see it to believe it. How are you? They don’t know what it’s like. You trust me.Get the fuck out of here! .Long live the king! For my first pronouncement I declare that everyone in Ward Three.Any objections? .Long live the king! . . Don’t worry. eat. you gotta do it yourself.No. Go to sleep.. So.. . You can’t sleep like that. Okay. . huh? You trust me. Just try to get some sleep. .. If you want something done.I know you can see.. Don’t worry. eat. I can’t. I’ll wash them tomorrow. You're so hot.

. .You suck. Oh. What time is it? What? What? What's the matter? Have you lost your sight? I forgot to wind my watch.Did you hear that? I’m gonna check it out. .Look at me! . lie down.What the fuck song is that? .Hey. And when I went blind. don’t you tell me the truth? You can’t trust a thief. Come on. right? I got a secret too.43. it made me think better. God! I can't take this. You know what? I’m smart. Get some sleep. fuckers! . Are you in pain? . I’m sorry for being such a burden. You fuckers. I got a lot to contribute. Whatever.It sucks.

He told me that..I can handle this.44. and. step back! The Sarge is gonna fucking kill me. .and I did nothing. .. step back! It could be infected.. man..And maybe. he told me he knew I could see.I could help. . Nothing. . You know. Fuck! . .. .It’s bad enough as it is. bathing me.Blood! There’s blood. I’m talking about us. For Christ sakes! It’s hard .Is this the right way to go? . Us! What? You dressing me.You did everything you could.I think I’ve to tell them. ...Yeah.. wiping my ass. No.What could you have possibly did? . .Did you get him? .And then what? . I could help. I’m not talking about you.Become their slave? .

You’re right. Do not tell a soul.. or a nurse Well. And there's gonna be a lot of changes around here. . If you wanna eat.Attention! Attention! The Government regrets having been forced to exercise. I’ll get used to it.Oh. I don’t have any choice. Fuck you! Attention! Attention! Attention! That’s the last we’re gonna hear from that asshole.. ... I guess I have to get used to it.45. what? As a wife.. you’ll just have get used to it.. won’t you?’Cause.What the fuck is that? . come on! ..Number One. I don’t.. Or. as.... I'm the King of Ward Three. We’re taking over this shit hole now.. enough to think of you as. As? As. Instead of my mother. .

you’ll have to pay for it. And that’s pretty much it, I guess. Okay, and now, for our "grand finale"... a little song that comes from the bottom of my heart. And it goes something like this, I just called To say I love you - I just called to say... - I’m turning it off. - I’m turning it off. - No, no!

You know. I’m going to collect the valuables! No one has to give if they don’t want to. anyway? Each give according to what they have. Don’t worry. Thank you..50. What can we do with it in here. .. I thought I told someone. everybody.. and all that. Well. I’ll be like your mom. .It’s just jewelry. . they better come through with the food. But don’t expect to be fed at the expense of the rest of us. to just tell them not to even bother putting the plastic in.

That was close. . . Got something here. Yeah? That’s good. We’re fine with these people. good. . . .We’re here. wait.Next! . You keep whining. but it’s okay. possibly a diamond. Wait.51.Two.

And now. .53. Shut up.. Because he's looking out for the sick and the hungry of his own ward. That makes him some kind of super hero in a world like this.That’s right.Shut up! Shut up! . .So you better watch out.But the others got a third box. .Shut up. How are we suppose to survive on only two boxes? That’s it...It’s immoral! . . . . born blind should understand empathy.

. I knew that. Let’s be quiet.. .Hello? .. It'll be easier for me to understand. And it’s not easy knowing that you've killed someone. I can see.And then what? And then what? I don’t know. You would’ve started a war for sure.Don't say anything. . Yeah.It’s a secret. I’ll pretend like I thought that one through. .. it’s my fault. So.56. I wanted. I’m sorry.At least I think I knew. you’re right. Let’s all be quiet. A real war. . You’re right. Like I did. . If you did kill him it would’ve been way worse. God! .but. Oh.. it’s been like a week or so..

I’m not going! I’m not gonna go! .Forget it! We're not doing that! . I’m not. So at Ward Three. And I think we should ask if there are any volunteers. .57. and you people have nothing left to offer. we came up with a new plan. I think she brings up a good point.Bull shit! No one’s asking you to go. you can’t blame us. Women for food.Asshole.Do you have any better idea? . Certainly not the men from this ward.No! . So.I’m not."Volunteers?" . Bring us your women.What are you talking about? . . Have a good day. What’s going on? We haven’t eaten in three days! We gave you all the food we have! It’s up to you to ration it! Distribution is your problem! .

Oh.Doctor? .58.What? Are you asking me for a deliberation here? I mean.Because there’s no fags here. But. . there’s no whores either! . .Well.I gave myself to you out of pity. of course. my God! Of course I would rather that my wife didn't go. is gonna be hurt.. My "male pride". Look. I think they should say so now. really? And why’s that? Because it’s just not. . what does it matter anyway? We’re all starving to death. . what I want really doesn't matter.It’s not the same. if there are any volunteers. It's completely up to her.That’s debatable. But if that even exists in here. So.. I wonder how many volunteers would we have if he said send us your men? . and now you think I’m some sort of goddamn whore? . I just think that people should .

.I’m no different than the rest. No one knows how many women are here.Stop! . but my wife is going nowhere.No.I’ll go too. .I'll go. Dignity has no price.. all right.Don’t! Don’t order me. . You can do what you like.All right.What? . You’ll do what I tell you to do! .59. . according to whatever morality they have left.No. Well. And then you can talk to me about dignity. . I’ll go too. I’ll go with her. that's not the point. do whatever they feel like doing. . There's nobody. . Me too. forget it! Anybody. and we’ll feed you both. . you do whatever you like.I’ll do what they do. .

that God is punishing us. And not only converted him. This is not what is happening. Since he couldn’t see. . This is not the God’s way.Thank you. .Someone who went blind.Here! . I have a jacket.Here! . it’s not.. little man.I don’t think so. . What is happening to us reminds me of what happened to St. Here.Here I am! .I have a jacket..73. but the Lord came to him and converted him. Paul used to kill Christians.Who would do that? . This is what's happening to us. but blinded him. . ... used to persecute them. God. And then he went crazy. he didn’t want his statue to see.Here! Here. Paul. That’s terrible. .

...74. It's pretty near here. and had a crisis of faith.. try to get some sleep. and it's big. He’ll lead you to a fire hydrant..I don’t know if it’d be possible. Five four. Too proud to be a seeing eye dog. all those people made me think of how lucky we are. tomorrow. so it can accommodate everybody.Yes. And then.. they could.. . So. Where are you. . dog? Still there? No. . Well. that we have a leader with vision.Or likely a priest. Don’t follow that dog. No. I think we should stay here tonight. . for a blind man to paint the painting like that. but seriously. I think it’s up to you to decide what we should do next... I was thinking that we could go to our house. Twenty seven.. who saw what happened.

. I don’t wanna know what you look like. Each night they slept in a different place. Brown eyes.. I think it’s okay.75... Come in. Black hair. . Here we are.. trying to find food and shelter. But how can we know each other? I know that part inside of you with no name.Yeah. .. Here we are. that was part of a group that moved around together. we talked to this man. I asked him why he didn't sleep in his own home. And that's who we are. if they can find their way to my little room. right? When you went to look for food. . I can’t believe it. he lost it. And he said he didn’t know where it was anymore.They're welcome to it. Looks fine. Come in.

Right? That’s a good idea. Careful. If you wanna take off your clothes too.. Okay. .. If you insist. You can leave them by the door. we have plenty of clean ones upstairs. to everyone.76. We don’t wanna mess the place up. Hello! Hello! Hello! Is anyone here? Maybe we should take our shoes off.. All right. .Thank you. .. doesn’t mean that no one’s here.

If it makes you feel better. it’s getting pretty dark.

Thank you both. Kick us out when you had enough. . babe. either. How come you never appeared in my . No. Yeah. . . . Not like you. I haven’t seen myself in so long. no. I must look ridiculous.. We're all flattered that you would offer your home. I don’t know.You’re plenty of a man. .You’ve never seen me. .77. Just tell me. .I. I want you to feel at home here because this is your home now too. But not ridiculous. Not at all. I'm sure you've seen worse sights than this old body.But in my dreams you’re beautiful.

You wouldn't understand. . . .No.Feels good? .I brought you some hot water. . but I suppose I was more beautiful before! We were all more beautiful before.Come on. thank you. I wanna know. Is anyone cold? . . okay? .I'm having a great time! Hello? It's me. .Okay. that’s why blindness is a gift to the ugly. Tell me. you’re not serious.Feels good.78. I hope we can find the boy's parents.. .It feels so good! .. What do you hope for? Nothing is more ridiculous than the desires of an old man.I’m gonna pour it down.Why that tone of voice? .Oh. dreams but I know you’re beautiful? Well.

or with everyone? Don’t make me say. at the far end of the table. . . What I hope is that we can go on living together. Good. It was cold. I want to know. At this end of the table we have pees and carrots.Together with me. Anchovies! Don't we have a special bottle of something sparkling for our guests? . Are we alone? Is anyone listening? Good.As we are.79. At the center we've olives in a bowl and some crackers on a small plate.Blind? For me nothing has been better. Like this. but I didn’t mind. we have anchovies. .I’d want us to live together. I wanna live with you.What tone? That one. All right. . And. . I remember that New Year’s.

Let’s see.I’ll have some. There’s coffee. .And the dog! . Blind inspiration. Clean water. . I see your face. It's all I need to remember. I need to wake up.Salute! . Take another of me in the face. if anybody wants some.80. Honey? Honey? I think we should get together . is this working? .Salute! Much better than any champagne. . .To our human family. When I touch you like this.And the dog! . So beautiful. I'd like to propose a toast. To our family.And the dog! And the dog! .Tell me. I see you. . There's nothing like water. please.

There’s not much food left. my God! .What? .I can see! .Come here.81.. and I'm worried about security. .Okay.What is it? . .I can see you! .Oh.What are you talking about? . and talk about what we need to do. . It’s you! Oh. . I got back my sight! . . It’s you.What? .What? . It’s hot. my God! It’s everyone at here. Hi.Yes. .. you! I can see you.What do you mean.I can pour it for you.

You’re kidding! .Oh.What? . my God! .No.You’re lying. .I can see! . I can’t believe it! I can see you.He sees! He sees! . I love you guys! You guys are so beautiful! At that moment. .You’re eyes! . my gosh! .What this mean? I can see everybody’s face! . ..82.You have your sight? . .Nice to meet you.

she thought. "I can see!" "I'm going blind". they would really see. the next weeks... we will all regain our sight in turn. that its intimacies might be lost? And what of this woman. who has borne such a terrible weight.83. Perhaps.... as to cling to this blanket of blindness? Who would be so foolish as to fear. . But who would be so timid. who is now so strangely silent... This time.. would therefore be sleepless with anticipation.... They would see again. The next days. " So the celebration was not entirely selfless.. shouting.. Special thanks to SergeiK. and is now so suddenly free? Already she could imagine the voices of the city..
