The play tells the story of two half-sisters who have diametrically opposite ways of seeing and feeling life. They share a blood bond and complex biographical milestones: the parents of both were victims of violence in the streets and now they survive in a family dysfunction marked by abandonment. Nothing seems to appease the anger of the eldest sister, dissatisfied with her life, Piazzolla’s lover and ineffective suicidal, who little by little begins to isolate herself in all possible ways. The youngest, despite the mistreatment suffered by her half-sister, does not detach from her. In the end, in a world relentlessly speeding toward violence, what would be the greatest act of madness that could be committed?
