The life asks you for going forward, "Life is like a dance, two people hand in hand. Life slides softly touching the grass and one's weight is at the mercy of the other one and so on". They are looking for the point with no return, the limit of the finishing line,

This is a play about journey, destiny and love.

A man looks at a woman from behind. This man [...] imagines that he can talk to her, that he can tell her a story, what he wishes he could tell her but is not able to, [...] locked up as he is in a coma of silence.
