Two angels kidnapped a man. They told him that he was a very kind person, and that his city was about to be destructed for it was profoundly sinned. But it was possible to sustain the city, provided that the man agreed to sacrifice his own life in exchange. The angels set a stopwatch; they waited for the man to decide.

Two men chit-chatted in a cafe, idling away time; a couple struggled in the face of the most serious marital crisis in life; lovers quarreled over insignificant matters. As the moment of the earth's destruction drew near, the characters came near to relationship break-downs as they tackled life's predicaments and crises.
