A deep emotional story about the first love and initiation of two children into the world of adults. At the same time, it is through their games in the sand that the story about their worlds and lives has been told intimately and delicately leaving no one indifferent.

A Note from the Director

In one part of the text, the question arises how it is possible that all playgrounds have been destroyed, and in general why people no longer play in the sand. If we start off with the slogan of this year’s season – heroines and heroes in anti-heroic time, then I would ask if She and He, deeply involved in playing in their own sand, and away from the society, are our heroes of today? Those who have not forgotten about the sand and those who have allowed themselves to fall in love at one happy time. In your everyday life, look around and ask yourself why all the playgrounds in the sand have disappeared and what this has brought upon people.
