The door opens to reveal a gloomy world. An elderly man lounges in a rocking chair listening to music. A black cat snuggles in his lap. The cat makes a terrified leap and crawls under a wardrobe and a gigantic explosion vibrates the picture. The old man, who is hard of hearing, shuffles slowly to the door to open it. Framed in the open doorway, he gradually fades away into the horizon as the room crumbles into pieces.
