Instead of the Holy Trinity, the real trilogy. What connects man and woman is natural history. An investigation using formal and thematic methods that qualify each other, in order to explore deep psychological constants. A film in three parts, corresponding to the trinity of father, son and Holy Ghost, which is repeated in the triangle of mother, son and God, and also reflected in father, family, state. In the film, however, these trinities are made profane.
