Inspired by true facts, Déshonorée / Dishonored traces the story of Pasqualina, a young girl living in the macho and rural society of southern Italy in the late 1960's. A patriarchal society, steeped in traditions and in conservative and religious values.
The text addresses the theme of sexual and feminine freedom. In a broader way, he probes the relations of the collective to the marginal and shows how, in a socio-economic context in crisis, these relations can degenerate, and take a violent and barbaric turn.
The elimination of the "weak link" because of its difference - sexual, religious, behavioral - responds to the logic of maintaining the family / societal clan "intact", virgin of any "impurity".
Pasqualina speaks to us. She evokes her explosive adolescence, marked by the burning of love passion, that of family ties, the sense of honor and revenge.
