We are now confronted with the inner-space phenomenon: a crude and realistic inner view of the place which, due to lack of communication, is fully detached and isolated from the outside world. In other words, the walls that were erected by defence mechanisms stand as fragile scenery, designed for special eerie and fearful scenarios. Unaware of the walls that surround it, the interior turns into a psychically dark and mysteriously blind area whose traumatic dimensions are in a grant contrast with the realities of the outside world. This traumatic statement leaving itself behind substantially, almost offers the emotional scenes of a common story generalizing adapted to today once again.
