Monochrome backgrounds of different shades of green are shown on the screen, while a subtitled voiceover describes contrasting and even contradictory connotations of them. Some of those shades are frequently used to represent bucolic or pastoral landscapes which are very appealing to the eye. At the same time, similar green tones are used in camouflage patterns for military uses. Despite its diversity, sometimes it feels like the voice does not describe random shades of green, but one by one the color samples of a specific landscape.
