    Set in a future where warfare has become endemic and everyday, the play focuses on two women Vera and Aimée, who survive on the edges of the fight zone, although both are in denial of the realities of their world. Their only contacts are with their friend and the company of the occasional A.W.O.L. soldier. They keep a pot of nettle soup on the boil for these visits.
