Adam, introduces us to his mother María laying down on a gurney before performing an abortion. Before María can gather all the courage to tell Paolo that she is pregnant, she discovers another reason why the baby she is carrying cannot be born. This is how the narrator of the story becomes an “Adam”, a being who is never born and that lives behind his mother’s back unable to see her eyes, however he can see through them.
Congratulations to María Claudia and her crew!
