“Puerperium” is the story of a conflict. When opposing tendencies exist in the mother-child fusion, tendencies capable of testing the deepest, most intimate human relationship to the limit.

Love, anger, frustration, desire, joy, anguish… overflow savagely and organically at this time. Who can escape the imprint of this?
