    Waking up from a dream, a soldier decides to replace the bullets in his gun with a blank cartridge to avoid doing what he hates to do. The commander orders his soldiers to fire. The soldiers shoot, but that person who should have been executed is alive! The commander repeatedly orders to fire again, but the soldiers disobey the order. They look at speakers and understand that his commander was a crow.
