The Sound

By Merco Productions

Tuesday 16 June 2009 - Saturday 11 July 2009

In an army barracks somewhere in remotest Europe, five people spend all day, every day, guarding a spot. They know nothing else. But as they each become convinced that they can hear a sound coming from somewhere near the barracks, their rigid, routine-filled lives slowly begin to fall apart.

The Sound is a searching examination of existence and fear.
