From the Sound Fountain, the programme “Erik and Milene”: a story about love. It’s about a boy meeting and getting his girl. All set to live happily ever after when suddenly disaster strikes. The plot has gone way off the rails. What happens then to lovers who suddenly find themselves fenced off from the life they knew? From the rest of the world. Does love indeed weather all? Can you hold on to your dreams even through a fence?
