Like a modern day Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, Sam and Jonathan, two travelling salesmen peddling novelty items, take us on a kaleidoscopic wandering through human destiny.

It is a journey that unveils the beauty of single moments, the pettiness of others, the humour and tragedy hidden within us, life s grandeur as well as the ultimate frailty of humanity.

A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence (En duva satt på en gren och funderade på tillvaron) is the final part in the Living trilogy, following on from Songs from the Second Floor and You, the Living.
