After an anonymous poem from 1461. 'Egidius, waer bestu bleven?', the voice-over says, when a crying young man throws himself on Egidius' grave. Cracking crackle lies across the image, derived from old paintings, while Egidius' spirit rises up to heaven from his grave. To stay with him, the young man considers suicide in many ways. But every time, the hell-fire warns him.
