Through the eyes of four boys, suddenly orphaned of both parents, the text traces and reweaves the map of difficult family relationships and the difficulties of growing up. The story reaches its climax when the deeper meaning is imposed, and takes over, at the expense of defenses.

Keywords: conscious, unconscious, adolescence, fulfillment of desire, family, orphans
