A man thinks about the reasons of unusually bloody conflict that remorselessly divided the society and even hundreds years after that his choices come back to him in the worst nightmares. The choices he made during the war and which he maybe even regrets - for example those about the love of his life. He can't take them back, but what can man do?

Adaptation of sci-fi novel written by one of the main Danish literature figure Kaspar C. Nielsen combines reflections of social and political tendentions with fantastic tragicomic stories. It balances on the edge of absurdity, surrealism and cruel irony.
