At the website of The Norwegian Theatre the following, among other things, is written about Kasimir and Karoline:

"Kasimir and his girlfriend Karoline are attending Oktoberfest to get a break from daily life. They love each other. Kasimir recently lost his job as a driver, and is not entirely in the mood to party. He has a temper, and quickly starts arguing with Karoline. Suddenly, he is not sure he is good enough for her.

Despite the stock market crash and failed politics - the mood of the annual Oktoberfest is the same. The year is 1932: The world economy is unstable, unemployment rises dangerously, the political fronts are sharpened and the prospects for the future uncertain. But, to the sound of the traditional marches, the merry-go-rounds of the party area in Munich goes around without worry. Over the area a zeppelin hangs, people drink beer, flirt, measure strength and allow themselves to be entertained. When the realities are unbearable, we all search for a happy breather from the mirthless daily life."
