This is the story about young people, who went to the legendary concert by the rock band “Pērkons” in Ogre in 1985, and experienced the demolition of the train that followed. 

Three friends - 17 years old Andrejs, Vizma and Ugis listen to music, try to find their place in life, deal with relationships with each other, with their families and the  Communist regime. Their desire for freedom from their parents and past generation opinions corresponds with the collective desire, felt all around the county, for change and freedom. 

Music by “Pērkons” will be a part of this show and each song will represent something in the story. This is a show for young people, who want to learn, what it was like, and for those who went through it.
