Nul uur Nul

synopsis

Just before midnight at a small station on the edge of a big city, a man awaits the arrival of a train. On the board announcing the time of the next departure he reads: 0 Hour 0. An AKO news-boy who has fallen asleep there shortly before, dreams a dream about the present, the time between yesterday and tomorrow. In his dream about modern times and present-day society there are many things he has read about but does not understand. The things he understands in his dream are real, but those he does not understand turn the dream into a nightmare. He wakes up with a start when the train comes in, and sees that the platform is now peopled with a motley assembly of travellers who played a rĂ´le in his dream.
