As they unfold their plan of resistance to world injustice and exploitation, a programmer, a philosopher, and an ex-judge play with each other and with the audience. This three-woman story of love, anger, determination, and (dis)connection oscillates between Quixotic idealism and the reality of the world situation. Is there a chance their plan might actually succeed?

This theatre performance takes place in an installation that features video and visual art, choreographed movement, and original music.
