Synopsis

Gabi, a young marginal thief, sees in Carmina, an unemployed alcoholic maid, the woman of her dreams. Gabi tries to convince her to become a marvellous woman who will take care of her and love her, providing her with all she needs : love, a home, human warmth and the sensation of being someone in this life. To obtain what she wants, she uses her overwhelming personality, and a pair of green marble shoes that she wants to offer to Carmina… The characters in “Pasajes” are miserable dreamers who try to survive in a world invented by them. They deceive each other under the influence of the strongest one, Gabi, a manipulative being that looks to obtain from others her own well-being.
