Synopsis

Part I. Materia Prima. It is the time, the life and the water that flow always and again with intense moments, sharp vibrations.

Part II. Cosmos News. State of the matter before the organization of the world, chaos or processes of combustion and growth.

Part III. After all we are only human, Ophelia! Here it is about men and the human condition, love, all that is futile and superficial, all that is deep and lost ... and then, all over again. 

"O heat, dry up my brains ! Tears seven times salt, burn out the sense and virtue of mine eye! "

Act IV. Scene V. Hamlet. William Shakespeare.
