A woman leaves an inheritance. Two younger women who have apparently no relationship with each other are receiving it if they create something together. Excavating the drawings and short stories of an artist, these two women will stop living arrested by their unknown past and come out of isolation by giving life to a woman’s story. How can we start telling the stories written in our genes and passed from one generation to another? Inspired but the female characters of Shakespeare’s Tempest, Herstory attempts to write an intimate take on revenge, isolation, and the personal prisons we all must overcome.
