No one needs anything here. It's all about want. (taglines)

Narrator: So you're born in the capital of the world and you can never escape. And that's how it is because that's how everyone wants it to be. It is all about want. No one needs anything here. It is about when you wake up in the morning and the snow is already coming down and it's bright between the buildings where the sun falls but already dark where the shadows are. And it's all about the want. What do you want? Because if you don't want something you've got nothing. You are adrift. You're washed away and then buried under the snow in shadow. And when in the spring the snow melts, no one will remember where you were frozen and buried. And you will no longer be anywhere.
