YERMA (Brief synopsis)
Yerma and her husband have been attempting to have children for some time to no avail, and when a local wise woman confides in her that it may have something more to do with Yerma’s husband than with the eager mother-to-be, Yerma’s growing resentment toward her spouse causes her to consider seducing Victor, the town shepherd. When her morals force her to abandon her plan, Yerma’s internal conflict soon begins to take its toll on her mental health.
