A story of love and loneliness awaits the spectators. This story tells about the impossibility of a person to accept the other one but at the same about the impossibility to exist alone.

By denying linear flotation of time, the unique decorations designed according to historical sketches, will appear on two facades at a time, the scenes from hieratic theater productions will pop up and the authors will not lose an opportunity to present their works, talk to each other and even joke.
