Build a Ship, Sail to Sadness

 
Build a Ship, Sail to Sadness is an absurdist musical travelogue. It follows Vincent, a solitary young man, as he rides on his moped through a deserted Scottish mountain region. His mission is to heal the loneliness of the few isolated inhabitants by introducing a mobile disco to the region. Driven by messianic determination and an addiction to petrol fumes, he struggles to keep his disintegrating vision afloat amidst the hostile landscapes and stubborn indifference of the locals. (Ludmila Cvikova)
