In this play each character is drawn and blurred showing their shortcomings: Herminia goes out of her way remembering her deceased husband; Cosme loses himself in his overflowing libido; Antonieta in the misunderstanding of not getting true love; Amadeo does not avoid evoking his marital failure; Purificación evidences the absence of his father and the lack of recognition of his mother and Francisco Xavier drowns in the routine of his work activity; while they strive Because they represent the greatness of Columbus and the discovery of America, they are more wrapped up in the insignificance and triviality of the people and their lives.

In each event people come and civility is what prevails, there has never been an incident inside or outside, due to the security system of the Baruta police. An extraordinary atmosphere is created and it has been an opportunity to show that culture is a space where we can all meet”.
