SYNOPSIS

Several decades after the war, Adam, the general of the intelligence services, is trying to finish the experiment of huge manipulation of collective memory, but something interferes with the work. Is it Intelligent Operating System’ error? Or unpredictability of the mechanisms of human mind? Or revenge of the loved one?

This is a dystopian performance based on the history of the ongoing war in Syria. Can you whitewash a long-term trauma? Does human memory have any chance in confrontation with electronic memory? Can „War of Liberation” be a better version of the war?
