Performed to tape, the multimedia performance included documentary testimony from people who remembered the extremely hard winter of 1938 and other attributes of life at that time.

Dealing also with the very uncomfortable racial prejudices of the time, the soundtrack included elements of racial slurs and chanting that do in no way represent the opinions of the authors.
