Many years ago, the cities beside the river suffered an epidemic. Things began to change and everything gradually turned into something else. The contagious epidemic affected everything and everyone: animals and plants, stones and earth, men, women and children, their thoughts, their dreams, their memories. After the years of epidemic had passed, the cities emerged again intact.
