A teacher sits down at the feet of her students.
Singing is heard in an abandoned village.
Food is brought to a prisoner on a white plate.
A soldier rests beside a pool of water lilies.
An abyss becomes a table.
The loaf and fish re-create their famous miracle.
The white-haired hero reads a poem.
The grieving mother prays for her son's killer.
One person does not seek revenge.
The next day, another person does the same.
