At different space-time points, a woman and a man share moments geared by complaints.  The Book of Complaints is a Theatre-of-the-Absurd play in six scenes; each scene is a "complaint" ("queja") of the author’s discerns of a society that assigns roles and characters that become a programming tool for human behavior, and the impossibility that these people comprehend their situation.  As a result, everyone complains that the assigned roles have nothing to do with their human conditions.  Each scene portrays a different couple building a relationship in the context of their society, journeying through the Chilean history, their colloquialism and the curious evolution of their language.
