Lara spends her days into the gloom, prisoner of the fables she tells herself to hide her life of sorrows: dominated by her husband and hostage of his violence, she’s not able to react and waits for the arrival of a saviour. But violence against women has not an happy ending: to get her fable back she must take courage and get out of the darkness.
