Barbarism and humanity, poverty and splendour, heroism and dreams define the fate of a young girl in a village in Central Greece. When she becomes a teenager, she manages to flee the stifling Greek province of the sixties and seventies and find a niche in Athens, next to the poet Nikos Gatsos and amongst the personages of the intellectual and cultural life.
The author is trying to recompose her identity in a poetically realistic way, self-searching without drama or scandal-mongering; the text is written breathlessly and read breathlessly. The prose is enriched with verses of songs, theatrical monologues and dialogues of real people.
