A dynamic intern messes up the routines at the National Cultural Archives, and an older colleague finds herself unimportant. The competition between these two women evolves into the absurd until the initial positions are reversed. An entertaining and complex tragicomedy about gender roles, working life, loneliness, conflicts between generations and the small and big horror moments in life. The play won the Lea Award for the best Finnish play of 2015.
