In 1529, the old master, Erasmus of Rotterdam, a professional hypochondriac, has been infected, according to him, with the English Plague or Hantavirus, a very similar strain to the current Coronavirus. Erasmus’ fixations are exacerbated by the health catastrophe, and he is obsessed with the impossibility of thinking, imagining and building the Future. Terror and “conspiracy theories” mix in his feverish mind, as well as the already unbearable weight of the religious conflict of the Reformation and the Counter-Reformation, whose solution seems to depend on the support that he wants to give to one side or the other. His maid, Aneska, cares for the Master and transforms herself into the public conscience by comforting and confronting him. What the old Master doesn’t need in this moment is the inappropriate visit of Martin Luther, who has a very contrasting personality: he is scandalous, reckless, frank, lustful and very politically affectionate.
