Beer, a 13-year-old boy, wakes up in severe pain in hospital, with a thick bandage around his head. Slowly, the memories of his serious car accident start flooding back and Beer must face a difficult reality: he is going blind.

Love and disappointment, hope and despair, pain and joy, life and death, normality and change: the play addresses universal and existential themes, and explores how a young person deals with and untimely emerges stronger from a life-changing, fateful experience.
