Inspired by ‘The House of Ulloa’, by Emilia Pardo Bazán, the story is condensed in the hours that precede a rave and everything that happens during it.
In an abandoned lot, Pedro, Tabo, Sabela, Jessy, Julián and Nucha discover and go through what they have always feared; loneliness, abandonment, the struggle against oneself, against others. The desperation of human beings with the sole purpose of feeling loved on earth.
Emilia Pardo Bazán wrote ‘The House of Ulloa’ forty years after Emily Brönte wrote her Wuthering Heights. Both share the gloomy and sinister vision of a place far from the city in which restrictive and alienating laws prevail, leading all those who live there to act more like savages than men. Their actions, their behaviours, revolve around an animality that shows a virginal violence and aggressiveness.
Nucha is not a woman of character, in the same way that neither is Julian. Both represent awe and, ultimately, impotence in the face of the savage.
It is here where Nucha, the main character of the story, will receive one by one the bites of those hungry souls who fight to dominate in a specific territory that they consider their own.
It is a contemporary story with names of its own. A new breath, an atrocious roar, as today and as yesterday, these ancestral laws that have the same roots as time, continue to exist.
