Once upon a time there was a girl who didn't want to be a girl, a mother who didn't want to be a mother, a father who forgot to be a father because of his work and a hairdresser who tousled his hair. We were on the eve of a devastating war. These four characters, torn from routine, are in a refuge. They all believe that war will allow them to change the course of their existence. This brief piece is intended to be a reflection on the prejudices about war that, in times of threatened peace, are conveyed by agents only apparently oblivious to its triumphant logic.
