Alice is a performance artist and Anders is an author working on a novel about the Finnish Winter War. When Alice is given the opportunity of running a provincial art college, the couple move to a small town. The pressure of work and the demands of family life come to a head as Alice's artistic idealism collides with local economic realities, and Anders retreats into his work on war and the myth of masculine silence. By turns, when one seeks comfort the other inevitably flees. Can love and happiness prevail under these circumstances?

Jussi Moila's witty dark comedy addresses both intimate and worldly issues. Anyone whose life includes love, family or work will identify with the sharply observed characters and themes in Moila's play.
