Synopsis

This symbolic drama underscores the human need for affection. Children steal lemons for the thrill, while women steal other women's men just to prove they can. Drug smuggling, clandestine love affairs, and two lovers involved with the production of Shakespeare's Othello carry on their own off-stage tragedy.
