In Death Bed a hooded main character explores a decayed house in the wasteland. The figures he encounters appear faceless – it is left open as to whether they are real figures or just imaginations and memories of the protagonist. In the end the video leaves one only with a vague notion of a mysterious situation in a post-apocalyptic scene, exposed to the insanity of a lonely settler.
