The videos compose a modern version of the Puccini’s Tosca, using the original music but changing partially the libretto. The background of the new libretto is made from a series of racists comments found on Youtube and left by some residents of Florenz in relations to some videos tagged « Florence and foreigners ». Shocked by the amount of these nazi comments, JerMa has decided not to keep silent and to shout a sonorous « Help!!! ».
The answer is « Tosca JerMa », a contemporary human drama where an anonymous raging nazi voice is deliriously singing « Die! » throughout the streets of Florenz.
