An innovative puppet musical combining emotionally strong music, unconfined space, passion and fear.

The animated musical is the melodramatic story of a woman who cannot understand the world of men. It takes place in a rock quarry with ten male workers. They resemble the rocks which they move around in their mechanical rhythm day after day. But one evening this rhythm is disrupted when the foreman’s wife arrives at the quarry. She brings emotion and humanity to the place, but soon realizes that this isn't place for her to live. She gradually descends into madness, and finally, blinded by desire for love and children, she gives in to the temptation to kill...
