A night full of military actions in Eastern Europe. While German sky surprises its people with the snow in summer Georgia gets its own “surprise” air raids. Jo, a Radio Universe show host connects 6 people in his show who weave a relationship through sharing their life stories, yearnings, love and death. The radio show connects West with East war-ridden Georgia and Germany where the war is just a TV footage.
A multiple award-winning dramatist and writer Nino Haratishvili (the author of The Eighth life) electrifies the play with powerful characters using poetic and musical elements. Her message combines both, the insecurity of the present day and the hope of peaceful end of the transition period.
This is a play for over 14 who are into life stories, music, languages, for people who appreciate Nino Haratishvili’s novels, who are interested in Georgia as a country and, of course, for those who love radio.
The Georgian author staged the co-production with The Tumanishvili Theatre  involving Georgian and German actors just like Frankfurt Book Fair  and its guest country  Georgia.
