In „citizens“ temporal and spatial structures around arriving people and playing children dissolve. The look of the city can be guessed during a brief moment when the temporal axis is shifting and one catches a brief glimpse of one of the buildings. It is hinted at the ambiguity that these people have to deal with. The scene is situated in a non-defined „city haven“.
