It is the story of a girl, an artist of the theater trying in every way to not succumb, not to collapse in front of the subtle violence every day is forced to endure. With all his might try to rebel against something that is much bigger than her.
The message is: do not persist to be alone. Let us join our forces, our ideas and let us help each other.
