UNDER BARE POLES
Pram and Bo, two inseparable friends, find themselves under bare poles in mental exile on Ama'r, a wondrous no man's land in the area around Copenhagen Airport. Pram has an airline ticket but waffles back and forth about whether to leave or to stay. Bo sees it as his noblest endeavour to get Pram onto the plane. On their journey toward the check-in desk, their relationship moves in many directions. The ever-returning question is: to go or to stay. Love and Suicide are discussed as possible roads out of mechanical repetition.
