Synopsis

Poetry, a white space, a column, a heart in thorns, a throbbing and a thrash bag about to burst: that is all Gaudi and Tristi have and nothing more. They are trapped. They wait for an answer from above. They are anguished. They yearn to know what is outside. They are without answers, but they do have one rule. When Oestrus enters and—driving them mad—pushes them to break the one and only rule, they discover what existing for prolepsis means and the horrid consequences of escaping from the space that guarded them from the world outside.
