Two couples meet in the hotel of a developing country, where they are confined for three days due to an outbreak of violence in the area, a situation that has necessitated an escalation of security measures and the temporary closure of the international airport. The older couple, a former diplomat and his wife, has been living comfortably in the area for years. The young couple is there to adopt a baby girl. The encounter exposes the delicate balance of their existence and leads them into a spiral of lies and betrayals.
Premiered 18 December 2013 at the Sala Petita of the Teatre Nacional de Catalunya, directed by Josep M. Miró. Cast: Joan Carreras, Carme Elías, Lluís Marco and Anna Sahun.
