bookThe service employee Irene struggles with her affection for women. Until now, she did not know the strong feelings that the conductor Kathy awakens in her. She wants to give in to them and experience a fulfilled life. But this affection must not be, the love for another woman must not be. Self-hatred fills her and she appeals to her pride and her right to love.
The story of Irene is an important testimony of the time, which tells in detail about the life of single and woman-loving women in the 50s.
