The story begins with the sighting of vapour. It's daytime, there's no one in sight but a person holding a phone. It is of great importance not to use a fog machine to simulate the vapor.
The next scene follows an expression, smelled but unseen. This could take place in the dark. Alternatively, visual aids can be used, including a bright yellow backdrop.
The third (but, in some sense, the first) episode focuses on the once again visible sighting of the event of our concern which has, in its slow progression, become another.
The epilogue—in the absence of an ending or for inspiration or, perhaps, for the love of loops, relays and repetition—recalls another story many times told.
