The city well matured in pain and bruised by history, survives on a stockpile of promises in hope of making an unmakeable dream by boarding a horseless carriage of the European elite. Its unfixable destiny preconditioned a whole generation to the disappointments of life and left it to search for happy endings in a scenography of doubt. Undeterred by the odds, the spirit of hope finds a way through like a fragile flower would in the crack of a security wall.
