Somewhere in the 20th century; Michael Jackson opens a hotel window and throws out a pillow. Groupies tear the cloth bag into pieces. A young women shows a winkled feather to the camera and recalls the pillow smelled sweet and felt warm. One cushion is still intact, it reads in black marker: “The sunshine is poison for my skin, please understand, I love you all”.
