The drama is based – in a, let’s say, “classical” way, – upon an interview. A seriously alcoholic woman, living in a small town in Transylvania, tells about her life, trying to understand how she arrived to her ruined state. At the time of the interview, our protagonist can be considered a “dry” or “freed” alcoholic; however, her sentences are still disjointed and fragmented, although incisive and tragically authentic. Éva, the beauty queen of the small town, prepares for a singing and acting career, but chance so ordains it that she falls in love with a famous actor from Bucharest, whose interest is only in a short-term romance. After this relationship, which wounds her profoundly, Éva marries a veterinarian. Her husband remains faithful to her even in the most difficult situations, even when his wife bears him several children, the fruit of different, obscure relationships.
