"The paranoia, the strange things that come all the time, through this we bring the created state faster. Everything was done because of the isolation and the fear of what will happen that we thought would last for two weeks, which is also mentioned in the text, but it turned out to be even more. When people said it would last two years it seemed unbelievable. These paranoias and everything that seems unbelievable comes as a result of isolation".

"Even now we don't know where the origin of that state of isolation came from," said the director and author of the show.
