…and the rest is silence

As in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, love plays an important role in this performance. It is a depiction of an external power that will eventually destroy the love, and with it the whole family.

There are two powers at battle. One is love, the other is one of the strongest rulers in the world: money. We all owe something to someone, because there is no life without benefitting from one another. Debt is real. But what happens when the debt is too heavy to carry and manage?
