In the middle of Syria desert, lives a group of dung beetles. They offer a public service by rolling faeces of big mammals. But one day, a huge sound resonates in the ancient city.

Dung beetles are not afraid of the noise, but they scared of the disappearing of their material raw suppliers : they are lay-off, they don’t have anything to roll…
This lettering express the movie’s intentions, like horizontality of shots or heaviness of matter. Here, typography become architecture. Letters seem to suffer from gravity, the -o- (which reminds the dung beetle ball) is unbalanced and the -ll- are unequal. The typography announces that even this type of structure does not resists either time or destruction.
