Mariela and José were once the golden couple of the Mexican artist inner-circle. Together they built a family and an artist colony to host friends like Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, and Rufino Tamayo. But now their daughter has grown and run away, Frida and Diego are too famous to call, and artistic inspiration has been strangled by isolation and mendacity. Set in an empty artists' colony in the Mexican desert in 1950, this mystery play reveals what happens to relationships when a long hidden family lie is exposed.
