A piece from "Till death do us part". Two young lovers, lonely souls escaping the abuse of reality into each other. Imagine a stranger suddenly in your path, and you feel you have known her forever. This is the experience of Cristal and Margarita, that begins when Cristal picks her up hitchhiking on a lonely dessert road. Margarita is searching for love. Cristal is already dangerously close to vanishing when she finds Margarita. With Margarita, she finds herself, feels for the first time and discovers that she is not invisible after all. The childlike, roadside life they make together is a dream that they truly believe will last forever. Once a heart wakes up from isolation for the first time, enchanted by a reflection in love's mirror, can the dreamer fall asleep again?
This piece floats deeper into Schneider's exploration of the colors of the human psyche, separation, relationship, androgyny and the fringes of social reality.
