NATIONAL CULTURE AWARD RICARDO FERNÁNDEZ GUARDIA 2015 IN 'BEST DIRECTOR' CATEGORY
Four women on stage, they share their own way of experiencing rape. Family members, acquaintances, strangers and society visit them in their spaces, causing them to show themselves as they are, with their questions and their answers about this situation. Four actresses develop stories related to the social and personal consequences of an act of rape: re-thinking/re-interpreting the trauma, erase the idea of 'overcoming' over the reality of learning to live with it, questioning the constructions about love and relationships, fear, exposure, how's a victim in everyday life, emotional fictions, corrective lesbian violations ... so many conditions that surround their stories and the journey they take in their lives.
