Mattias Andersson takes his starting point in Fjodor Dostojevskijs classic The Idiot to examine the relevans of the novel’s ethic, political and existential questions in society of today. A polyphony of voices and texts from 1869 to 2015 creates a scenic piece about the complex of problems and provocation of goodness.
