A young man named Fenix arrives in a nowhere town, accompanied by a mentor who is teaching him the art of traveling. He confuses love between a young woman and her older sister who is a prostitute; the latter of whom literally steals his heart because she longs to free herself from a mythical punishment. The play's second part is aptly subtitled, "The Cabaret of Discontinued Love." It contains many outward philosophical pronouncements on love, as when a braggart guard of a tenement house declares, "Love is the bitterness of the meringue, an expensive and sweet candy that becomes bitter; is the central garden where all paths come together. However, love doesn't exist; it is a path that invents itself in every mirage and offers to travelers the fleeting illusion of a city where travelers can stop to give their heart a rest...but...but everybody is happy and so am I."
