A preamble telling how many years ago ,the pollution, waste of resources, excessive population and the unconsciousness of humanity which took them to the Great disaster.;an ecological cataclysm of planetary proportions from which only a few humans were saved .

For the disaster  not to be repeated The humans who survived transformed into tri-humans ,departments formed by three old humans now converted into one human.Being three means that the tri-humans always have to pact to do anything  and this as result evokes good understanding between them and avoids fights and wars .Also to make everything easier the tri-humans communicate by singing in a way much more fluid ,effective and pleasant  than word based communication, ambiguous, lies ,and shouting like the humans .

When the opera begins we are in the year 3,333 and the tri-humans have found some archeological excavations, a strange object used to communicate ; a mobile phone .Their scientists have managed to decrypt it and thanks to this ,they can now study how the humans were  From then til now we know very few things and what had triggered the Great disaster.

The mobile phone belonged to a young human girl who used it to tape her daily blog conveying her life and her impression and thoughts in the world around her .With the information stored in the device  the tri-humans can discover surprisingly, the peculiar way the humans had.Also the way they related to one another, how was their evolution, how they fell in love ,how they reproduced, how they fought and how they fell in love  and how finally they managed to destroy the planet.

The human owner of the mobile phone was called Greta and everything indicates that she ,Greta Thunberg ,the Swiss girl,who started “Fridays for the future “ the planetary movement who fought against climate change
