Summary:

Adam, the hero of this play, experiences a bank robbery and, in deep shock, he takes another identity and disappears from his home town. With his new identity, he makes a new existence for himself and experiences a new emotional story, while his wife and brother search for him. When they finally find him, their problems are far from over, since he does not remember his former life, or his wife, or his brother, or his friends.

A serious drama about people who find it hard to bear their destiny and the contemporary pressures of everyday life.
