Synopsis

Julia lives in a gigantic city, dusty and impersonal. Julia is 25, has two children and a husband. Julia never went to college, she is orphaned and unemployed. Julia dedicates her life to everyday medicine: she cures bunions, sore backs and sore souls, she even does abortions when the pregnancy is recent.
Julia is lonely. She has no friends, no family, no roots. The city took them away from her. Julia has only her children, and her husband. Or so she thought. For one day, she finds herself without a husband. And when he goes, so does her old decrepit apartment, her job as a medicine-woman, her pride and her dignity.. On that day, her whole universe falls apart. Shattered. On that day, she is left only with her children, the only witnesses of her husband's love and later detachment. They shall become the instrument of her vengeance.
