In a queue for the tube a man is on fire flames climb up his collar as he waits for his train. But he stands unaware of the smoke filled air instead he checks his melting watch and impatiently taps his burning foot ignited by angst over his delayed route.
The woman by his side tries to tell him to cool down tries to tell him he's burning but she can't, she's drowning. Water soaks up her suit and seeps through her skin so that she's coughing and spluttering and sinking from within.
Two colleagues across the platform pay careful attention to this storm and from it form conversation, they judge the gentleman's irritation and questions the woman's suffocation but fail to notice the cause of each other's frustration.
Only the driver as his train pulls in closer, witnesses one co-worker being blown over whilst a rat races furtively up the other one's leg.
