In the early years of this century, tuberculosis nearly completely exterminated the family Picotti. The brothers Marco and Annibale are the last descendants who are determined to protect themselves against this family-disease by a life in asceticism...
Marco, however, cannot prevent Annibale from living her 'real' life by getting married. After the premature death of Annibale Marco, his fight will continue until the bitter end.

It's fantastic to see Luc Loots playing the man who, as he grows older, gets more lonely and desperate at every turn. Also Marc Wagemans and Cathérine Springuel succeed in bringing their characters to life in a subdued and honest mood. Moreover the interpretation of the story is characterized by a clever and dramatical build-up which ensures that the attention of the public never wavers. For the first time in the history of Stap the actors speak on stage. The result is powerful, beautiful and moving.
