A soldier is sitting in the trenches on the frontline looking at the flame of his lighter. We observe a short sequence of romance, marriage proposal, childbirth, and development of his family. Suddenly, an explosion occurs – it consumes the soldier. Were all the memories imaginary? It is a metaphor for the way his life could have turned out if there hadn’t been a war and he had his tomorrow.
