Skeppsby Park is planning the 50th anniversary of their cultural center, popularly known as Silversälen. The world-famous artist Alison Geoffrey’s sound work “The light is inside the box” is to be premiered. The journalist Hacke is given the task of completing the municipality’s storytelling project, which has engaged Skeppsby Park residents for decades. At the same time a terrible crime takes place, but the planning of the anniversary continues, despite the fact that Alison’s health is getting worse. In various ways they get involved with both the crime investigation and the municipality’s storytelling project. Journalist Hacke, doctor Theresa and public official Ellie embark on figuring out how everything is actually connected. If that’s even the case?

Content reunites David Wiberg and Oskar Thunberg, who were the brains behind the critically acclaimed “Här kommer alla känslorna på en och samma gång” (Lumor/Unga Dramaten 2017). With nods to Samuel Beckett and David Lynch, they continue their reckoning with our age’s fixation on clear, selling narratives, and investigates our collective quest to fill our lives with content, real as well as fictional.
