  2. Fact Sheet

Mass media are invaded. TV and radio are interrupted by a signal. Internet connections and phones die. Everyone stands in front of the TV, instead of their usual program, another hypnotic image floods the screen. No one has ever seen an image like it before. The radio only emits a distant murmur, like a whisper. Nothing else.
