This street art opera is a comic story of passion and revenge played out by octogenarians on zimmer frames. He’s been sleeping around. She's going to "shoot the fecker in the pecker." Sure, she’ll be better taken care of in prison than on her pitiful pension! This unique artistic hybrid is projected as a stencil style animation on city walls, while its operatic soundtrack is broadcast to the audience through headphones for an experience that is at once communal and an intimate listening experience.
