- It's after midnight and it's raining.
- A young man sits at the top of a staircase leading to the river.
- He strips down and swims across the river to the middle, where the current is swift.
- He gets to the other side.
- He thinks things will get worse and then better. Then he walks towards the Heart of Darkness.
