The Vice of Hope

19 SEP - 7:30PM

“If I have to die, I want to die my way.” Maria’s time flows along with the river. She walks firmly, her hood up. A hand-to-mouth life, without dreams nor desires, spent taking care of her mother and at the service of a merciless, bejeweled old lady. With her brave-eyed pitbull, Maria ferries pregnant women across the river, leading them to an infernal fate. But salvation will pay her a visit, in its most ancestral and powerful form, as miraculous as life itself, teaching Maria that staying human is the greatest of all revolutions.
