Ramón: Who made you enter today?
Greta: Nobody saw me
Ramón: And why are you dressed…like that?!
Greta: Por que soy soldado senor!
Ramon: But here there are no soldiers
Ramon: There's no "señor"… Here there is only Ramon and the "Civil Guard"
Ramón: Here there are a man and a woman
Ramón: Here's me and you. Are you afraid?
In a country that has existed for more than 50 years without an army, Greta has a dream that she keeps hidden as fiercely as her virginity: to become a soldier-woman. In order to make it real she secretly performs a desperate attempt: she wants to be accepted into the “Civil Guard”. The police chief, Ramón, apparently listens to her and understands her. But he is a rather corrupt man. The young girl is overwhelmed by an orgy of words that make her believe in the man’s true interest, and she trusts him. Nevertheless, Ramón takes her by force, as in a ritual sacrifice. Will these roots of a “happy past that has produced unhappy people” bring Greta in the end to be crushed by the memory of a lost and sincere time? Only at the end of the performance the conclusion has an unexpected outcome, that of a revolution. The revolution of ‘the different’, the last possibility to resist, albeit unnecessarily, to the barbarism that is approaching. Greta then pays for her lost dream of becoming a soldier and without complaining she says farewell to herself and to what she has lost along the way, with a deep wound in her heart.
