Todos os dias se extinguem espécies animais e vegetais, todos os dias há profissões que se tornam inúteis, idiomas que deixam de ter pessoas que os falem, tradições que perdem sentido, sentimentos que se convertem nos seus contrários... Fim de século, fim de milénio, fim de civilização. Uma família de oleiros compreende que deixou de ser necessária ao mundo. Como uma serpente que despe a pele para poder crescer noutra que mais adiante se há-de tornar pequena, o centro comercial diz à olaria: Morre já não preciso de ti.

Não mudaremos de vida se não mudarmos a vida.
