Katie's life unfolds during savage times. Her beloved had to leave after the last catastrophe, but he promised to return. Together with a couple of foreign servants, Katie lives protected in her garden, under the shade of her cherry trees, silent witnesses of her life and of History. Every day she receives visitors, every moment could bring the return of the one who left, and Katy keeps herself ready.

In the shade of a cherry orchard thickening with the memories and unfulfilled desires of many generations, her own desire is taken up into the maddening whirlwinds of history. Standing at the crossroads of past and future, armed with her desire, she weaves moving evocations of imbricated pasts and deeply wished-for futures.

“Fascinating dialogue with her Foremothers and – at the same time – her kinswomen.” (Prof. Dariusz Kosiński, Jagiellonian University, Kraków, Poland)

"How can such a pure feeling emerge from an actor's body?" (Franco Acquaviva, Sipario.it).
