330. Play: Sad man
A man in mourning, coloured by his carbon mourning is making a fire. His wife has recently died, so he has to cook dinner by himself. He pulls a rope made of bark back and forth through a bamboo piece until it heats and smoke appears. The dry grass under the wood turns into flames but the fire quickly dies and he starts over again.
