As you walk on the border between an art installation and a theatrical performance, you will enter a forest. The military district of Březina is an area inaccessible to the public, one that is fighting a small but persistent enemy. A small bug that the harvesters' heavy weapons come up against. The landscape is collapsing, becoming alien. Everything must be destroyed without any remains. In the darkness of the forest two foresters try to bring light to a hopeless situation. How do you revive what is dead? Lifeless pieces of old sets become concrete objects, and out of the mosaic of authentic testimonies of the men responsible, who often have opposing views, a story is born.
