This is a story of how young people evolve and mature. The production wends its way through time which traps some young ladies and men into a small space due to external circumstances and puts extreme strain on their relationships. Friendship, love, anger, thirst for life, sincerity, greed and treachery are no longer just words but are given specific and unique meaning. Everyday life becomes a thriller, romantic drama and action film all in one.

As the story is not centred around wars or history but the mental state of a small group of humans, it could easily take place in a different time and space. And who knows, maybe it does – right here and now with you.

Esko Salervo’s draft received the Sylvi award for the best Finnish script in 2012.

The premiere took place on March 16, 2013 in the Barn Hall of Endla Theatre.
