Twilight: people gather around an old drill tower (salt mining) in a meadow. White forms in the grass. A man steps forward and narrates a myth of creation. Crows screech but remain invisible are they maybe in the tower? One of the white forms moves slowly closer to the tower. The storyteller opens the lower part of the high door, the white turtle enters and disappears behind a ladder enveloped in thin Japanese paper. Light shines through and images become visible as the story is told. The images illustrate the story. People draw closer, come into the tower. The light rises higher, till a male/female figure falls through the layers. The crows remain silent.
