synopsisSecurity camera footage shows a bus colliding with a van. In slow-motion, the traffic accident turns into an almost elegantly choreographed dance, while the asynchronous soundtrack plays out a drama of human voices, screams, and punches that recalls the police shooting into a demonstrating crowd.
