Vassa. Woman, wife, mother, businesswoman. Vassa. The head of the family, the head of the family business. Vassa. A successful woman. But what is the price of such success? How much does it cost to run a successful family business? How much do you pay to keep family secrets? And when money is no longer enough, can extreme means be used?
Are there any limits? What about the law? Can we take the law into our own hands in the name of good? If so, is it justifiable? And is it worth it? A play about wealth becoming fatal. About a life, we want to protect and save. But at what cost?
With the Slovak translation by Ján Ferenčík and the Czech translation by Leoš Suchařípa.

Running time: 1 hour 40 minutes, no interval
