In this FIRST instalment, “I. GENESIS and RESURRECTION”, the story begins with Maria – alone, heavily pregnant and with her baby son in her arms – desperately fleeing the persecution inflicted on her people by the Fascist dictator Franco at the end of the Spanish civil war. On her escape into France, her infant son is the victim of a callous border guard but she and her unborn daughter are saved by an unknown assassin; both actions echoing past and future violence and vengeance. The trauma sends the unborn child’s mind deep into the past where a horrible crime against her ancestors in prehistoric times hints at the genesis of otherwise inexplicable hatred and violence that have often re-surfaced down through the centuries. Back in Bayonne, Maria buries her infant son in a world of self-recriminations. It is only through communion with her unborn child and a new friend that she begins to face life again, but unaware of just how dangerous the birth of her new child may turn out to be.
