Theatre play, premiered in 2019. (Spain)
Two women, two eras, two stories bound by blood. A Jewish actress who teaches drama to children in the Terezin concentration camp, and an entomologist studying glow worms who makes the late realisation that she is a Holocaust survivor. Two fire flies that shine in the darkness. Two women that shine despite other circumstances.
