Ang ikalimang episode ng GANAP ay ang ikalawang bahagi ng “Lungsod-Lungsuran.” Sa nakaraang episode, napagnilayan natin ang paghahanap ng sarili sa siyudad. Nasilayan din natin ang kundisyon ng mga taong sapilitang nakikipagsapalaran sa kalsada—mga taong hindi malaman kung nawawala ba o natatagpuan ang sarili sa pakikipagsabayan sa marahas na agos ng mga kotse at panahon. Ngunit marami pang naitatagong sikreto ang mga gusali’t eskinita, lalo na sa dilim ng gabi. Muli tayong magtungo sa lungsod.
