Synopsis

Using a mix of versed and unversed passages, this is a war-poem both historic and frighteningly topical. It begins in the 1950s during a period of vigilance and dread in the middle of the Cold War: We hear the thoughts of those involved who are trying to understand and justify their roles, and examine the lives of civilians who are not aware of the impending danger, as well as those who are.
