A man, a woman and a boy run past a small cluster of houses with dark windows and broken shutters. A fence separates the fleeing group from the abandoned buildings. The man covers his face as he runs. The woman averts her face from the viewer. Fear is clearly visible on the face of the child. A telephone pole leans to the left, away from the buildings and in the direction of flight. (Monica Jensen 04/15/93)
