What are the reasons that have led the world to civil and moral degradation? A family like many others, socially and politically committed since the seventies, shows us through its experience this progressive destruction and the continuous and inexorable impoverishment of our society. small betrayals, hidden violence that happen every day, weave a sort of network in which everyone's ideals are trapped. The story is projected towards a not very distant future in which violence and oppression rule society and where individuals adapt to live in a totalitarian world. The novel is structured in three parts and the images of this story flow in front of our eyes as in a film in which we too find ourselves protagonists.
