The play takes place in a world that has survived ten years of a deadly plague. One third of humanity was wiped out and a new regime called “The Gospel” has taken over the world, promising peace and serenity to all mankind for the price of uniform thinking.
M and A, a celebrated former director and her loyal assistant who are fleeing The Gospel, reach a desolate junction and decide to rest there. They are surprised by a traveling theater wagon and soon discover that the junction is the only place where the culture is re-examined in accordance with the messages of The Gospel. The worthy wagons will continue to travel from one settlement to another and perform, while others will be thrown into the abyss. When The Gospel offers M and A to fulfill the role of critics and choose which works to save, M agrees, believing she is the suitable person for the job. A, who’s memory is lost and is completely dependent on M, finds himself cooperating with the killing of innocent artists.
