A radio play, first aired by the Radio Theatre at RÚV (The Icelandic National Broadcasting Service) in April 2011. Directed by Kristín Jóhannesdóttir.

About the play:

The play tells the story of a girl and a boy who have been chosen, by an institute, to have a child together. The setting is an unusually well organized city, where human weakness has been outlawed. Scientific progress has led to humans developing towards being born without physical or mental frailties. The city prides itself in being a place where pure beauty reigns. The girl carries the child under the supervision and surveillance of the institute, but the young people's reaction does not turn out to be as calcuable as expected - or what?
