I had the honor to attend the premier of Dr. Drissi's play. Dr. Drissi gives us the analogy of the immigrants struggle in a foreign land, and the resentment of our motherland towards those who have abandoned her. The story depicts the conflicting lives of mothers, and absent daughters. It embodies the nostalgia of “La madre patria” that yearns for her daughters' (in this case) return, and the soul-tearing agony of the daughters who wish to return. Both, with guilt in their concience for not being good enough to each other.
