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
Greta: Yes
Ramon: There's no "señor"… Here there is only Ramon and the "Civil Guard"
Greta: Yes
Ramón: Here there are a man and a woman
Greta: Yes
Ramón: Here's me and you. Are you afraid?


In a country existing with no army for more than 50 years, Greta has a dream that she holds inside 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 get accepted into the body of the "Civil Guard". Apparently, she is listened and understood by the police chief, Ramon.

But he is a rather corrupt man. The young girl is just overwhelmed by an orgy of words that make her believe in a true interest
coming from the man, and she trusts him. Nevertheless, Ramón will take her by force, as in a ritual sacrifice.
Are these roots of a "happy past that has produced unhappy people" to bring Greta to the end, crushed by the memory of a lost and
sincere time.

Only at the end the play will reach the conclusion that gets a genious tone, that of a revolution.
The revolution of "the different", the last possibility to resist, albeit unnecessarily, to the barbarism that is approaching.
So Greta ransoms her lost dream of becoming a soldier; without complaining she greats herself and the things she has lost along the
way, although with a deep wound in her heart.
