What happens when the immovable object of iron clad tradition and rock-like ritual meets the unstoppable force of defiant youth with a savage hunger for change? The piece is a tapestry of oddness, bizarre characters and situations that build a story about social change. A new generation search for a new truth as they battle stuffy bureaucracy and the heritage of an ageing castle of ritual.
