Mona is a 45-year-old bodybuilder, her existence is a spasmodic quest for perfection and beauty, but in the eyes of the world she looks like a woman obsessed by a unshapely ideal. Mona is both demiurge and creation, a hand that shapes and material. The continual migration between these opposing poles generates a split: Mona’s body is a mutant body that has grown to become an autonomous entity. The body is her inseparable container, her most faithful ally, her partner responding to laments. The body is impulsive, it is irrational desire, it is all that Mona aspires to become. Together they find themselves on the threshold of their destiny: completing the transformation or surrendering to their own nature.
