    The great actress Sarah Bernhardt is trying to reconstruct events of the past. In her memories, she is on the stage again, in her childhood, immersed in the conflict with her mother, or in conversations with her lover. Why she needs it all? Yes, she needs it to fill her fading life with emotions and passions, but this time only in memories. She still needs the stage and partners.  Sarah Bernhardt delivers monologues and has imaginary dialogues with her secretary Pitou.

    Some important words remain unsaid, so Sara Bernhardt stubbornly continues her one-sided dispute with her late opponents. At the verge of  nonexistence, her feelings, suffering, passions, irrationality all come back naturally. This is what life is all about, and what theater is about.
