A playful story about some of the elements that compose our time: Optimism for development, and at the same time anxiety and panic over the same inexorable optimism.
In the film a little girl plays the violin when the Swedish bigest pear-cultivation is devastated. Here the traffic to the bridge will pass. At the stock exchange in Copenhagen the prophets of the business industry repeats a new magic word that they hope will turn out to be real.
The police arrest Death because he has revealed truths about the environment threat.
The bridge director, Sven Landelius, proudly tells that as a child he played with mekano. A man with a bike is ready to take to war against Sweden, so that Skåne finally can merge with Denmark.
One sound, but still two people.
