Rosi is from Germany and she has a dream. Once in her life she would like to live in Finland in the Arctic Circle and not just as a tourist but like a real local inhabitant. One day Rosi inherits some money from her mother, finds her long lost freedom and moves to Rovaniemi.

She is 58, almost blind and she has physical constraints. In 2009, after two years in Rovaniemi she has to move back to Cologne. Vast landscapes, reindeers, mystical Lake Inari and northern lights stays in her mind as do also the everlasting longing: Will she ever be able to return to Finland?

In 2017 Rosi meets Analog Theatre’s team from Cologne. They illustrate Rosi’s experiences from Lapland to stage for a prize winning performance. In the spring 2020 Rosi was already on her way to Finland, to perform at Viirus and tell about utopias and how dreams come true. Then came the coronavirus. In the spring 2022 Rosi´s story will be finally told to the Finnish audience. What is Rosi dreaming of now? What are our dreams?
