From A to X: a story in letters
In thedusty, ramshackle town of lives A'ida. Her insurgent lover Xavier has been imprisoned. Resolute, sensuous and tender, A'ida'sletters to the man she loves tell of daily events in the town, and ofits motley collection of inhabitants whose lives flow through hers. Butthe area is under threat, and as a faceless power inexorably encroachesfrom outside, so the smallest details and acts of humanity ' anintimate dance, a shared meal ' assume for A'ida a life-affirmingsignificance, acts of resistance against the forces that mightotherwise extinguish them.From A to X is a powerfulexploration of how humanity affirms itself in struggle: imagining acommunity which, besieged by economic and military imperialism, findstranscendent hope in the pain and fragility, vulnerability and sorrowof daily existence.
