There comes a time when in a daily life struggle alienation from oneself seems the only escapist remedy. Dullness is destructive and detrimental to both soul and flesh.
In a hotel room two people are trying to get to know each other. These two major characters of the play Nino (female) and Giya (male) are making a strenuous effort to recall when they had met each other while unwilling to reconcile with the fact that they know each other’s names.
There’s a knock at the door. They are in bed together their formula of escapism. The uneasiness of the situation is further intensified by the knowledge that it’s the cheated husband and wife. They suddenly realize, it, in fact, is them standing beyond the door.
In a desperate attempt to save their love, Nino and Giya refuse to acknowledge they have long been married to each other. They come to realise they’ve got to flee the monotonous life and tap into their powers of love and fidelity.
