You don’t choose your family. But Amparo is offered a solution. After an unhappy childhood, she decides to reply to an unusual newspaper ad. 
The play signed by Marta Barceló tells the story of two women who are given the chance to share their loneliness and discover a real reason to love life.

”Two actresses meet at first reading with MOTHER. It's not the story from the text, it's the real story of the show, the one that I decided to share. Two actresses DL&CT, two directors MC & AFI, two roles: MOTHER & DAUGHTER, a rainy day and a TEXT - CD brought us together (such a crazy thing), DB joined us (moment of grace) and especially CC said YES and gave us courage. And many spectators who hugged us. I didn't create this show, I just accompany him I'm amazed and IM glad. So I dare say it's good, that it's an exceptional show even for the fact that because it is a unique story: it was born at first reading. Not the second, not after rehearsals, but on the first meeting, in front of me, with no word-indication from me. A show whose images you will find inside you. To be seen with closed eyes and an open heart” – Mariana Cămărășan.
