When motherhood hits Nerea (36), a novice Basque writer, like a tsunami, Alice Espanet (37), a French resident in Vitoria, drowns her two ten-month-old twins in the bath. The appalling event deeply moves Nerea. What kind of mother could kill her own child? The answer appears to be as easy as the incident was repulsive. Nevertheless, Nerea feels a powerful and a shameful attraction for the infanticide and the hideous incident. A literary prize with financial endowment gives Nerea the opportunity to request a leave of absence not to raise her child but to create: because writing about Alice will be the only way of understanding her own motherhood's radical experience.
