The urban life, distant and oppressive, gradually withers the soul. He decides to defy it all, tearing off his suit and tie, shouting in excitement, and recklessly running through the city. In this moment, he feels his steps becoming freer and lighter. ""Escape"" is an experimental short film that portrays the protagonist's mad dash and collisions in the city, depicting the struggles and repression faced in modern life. Yet, his solitary frenzy is seen as a rare and abnormal event by the oblivious masses, who continue their mundane existence in a state of numbness.
