Harry and Michel live in the basement of a luxury apartment block, guarding the inhabitants.
No-one goes outside. The world might be at war - it might even have been plunged into nuclear winter.
No-one knows. All Harry and Michel know is that if they are vigilant, 'the Organization' will reward them: promotion to an elite cadre of security officers remains their shining goal.
But what if there were no-one left to guard? And if the promised relief shift arrives, how will they fit in to Michel and Harry's studied routine of boredom and paranoia?
