A symphonic poem about an alleged atomic explosion in Antarctica: In 1979 the satellite Vela 6911 registered a double flash of light near Prince Edward Islands, indicating an atomic test.

The log of a South African Navy officer describes the destructive effect on the Antarctic landscape. The Angolan-Portuguese composer combines the text with sounds of self-made instruments, Acrux, Toha, Dino or Celeto, and video projections of his own expedition to the ice.
