Based upon "The Passion according to G.H.", by Clarice Lispector.

Made for 2x zoom viewing.

It's a story about a woman that had it all, and how she discovered that it wasn't what she needed. In a sterile and dry storageroom, a murder of a cockroach pulls a quiet woman into a maze of inner thoughts about the meaning of her life, about the value of things she had, in a writing also claustrophobic, heavy and dry as the room.

"Something's missing that once was essential to me and is so no longer. I don't need it anymore, as though I had lost a third leg that until then kept me from walking but made me a stable tripod. I'ts that third leg that's now missing. And I've gone back to being someone I never was, I've gone back to having something I never had before: ust my two legs. I know that I can walk only when I have two legs. But I sense the irrelevant loss of the third one, and it horrifies me, it was that leg that made me able to find myself, and without even having to look."

hahahaha yeah, some zooming was good to go, I made it to be seen at a 2x zoom. And, ouf, that's really a disgusting book, but it's a great one for the same reason!
