Nowhere, nowhere from. Synopsis

„May Tito kick the bucket right this second if this was no goal!“ The hardest curse Yugoslavian boys can think of. One day it comes true.

20 years later the narrator is selling ferry tickets across the Oslofjord to tourists and drinking tasteless beer with Lars, a gotten around Viking living with a parrot. Then Lars disappears, Selma appears and disappears again – and again nothing stays the way it is. There´s no arriving in Norway and no returning to a country that doesn´t exist anymore. Only sometimes there´s „Hokahe“, which in the language of the Sioux means „a beautiful day to die!”.
