      Barnen bar änglanamn: Mikaela och Angelica, men mest kallades de för ungdjävlarna. Vad bar namnen för drömmar? Inte så långt därifrån satt en familj på fyra personer. Föräldrarna, som säkert hade någon form av intellektuella yrken, resonerade med barnen om yrkesvägar och utbildning, om fördelar och nackdelar med att vara läkare, lärare, jurist, journalist. Barnen hette Moa och Tore, namn som antydde att de hade fötts fram direkt ur leran vid ett sörmlandskt torp. Vilka drömmar bar namnen? Varför söker motsatserna varandra?
