The play is a long conversation between two different people, two people who belong to different social classes. Two people between whom there is a permanent confrontation with a homicide attempt and a suicide attempt, both of which fail grotesquely.
The whole play is a psychological study of the condition of exile.
In a dark basement, two flatmates, the political emigrant “AA” and the economic emigrant “XX” talk to each other. The first dreams of the day when he will write his life’s work, while the second agonizes over money, dreaming that one day he will return to his native village where he will build a house.
Their dialogue, at first trivial, begins to take the form of a duel in which step by step “AA” and “XX” expose each other.
The intelligent “AA” disapproves of “XX’s” naïve delusions by exposing his folly. In turn, the emigrant “XX” discovers the secret of the intelligent “AA”, the hypocrisy and pseudo-intellectualism that masked his loneliness.
These two characters seem to contrast strongly, communication between them seems impossible, but one cannot exist without the other. They are the embodiment of contradictions. Neither is completely good or completely bad.
Together they make up the typologies of thousands of emigrants who are in Europe today, emigrants who become slaves to their dreams.
