Vilalta's first play, in three acts. Stage adaptation of her novel by the same name. Diego and Julio are idealistic and rebellious young people, but life brings them a series of disappointments. Disillusioned and disorientated, they search for something which they cannot precisely identify but which involves a rejection of conventionalism and a yearning for freedom.
