“The Shadow of Desire” is a story that intends to show the two sides of a coin in which both faces are valid. Here, as in real life, there are no perfectly good nor completely bad characters. They are simply persons that live and feel their own life. This is not a common soap-opera, nor of easy prototypes. Undoubtedly, its plot will create debate as human relations are attacked without prejudices. Its essence shall be feelings, from the most noble to the most vile. Friendship, love, treason, suspicions, infidelity, ambition, loyalty, passion, desire, intertwine in the most diverse ways, to make of the life of the characters a constant game of confrontation, meetings and avoidance. There will be situations in which misunderstandings and lies, social impositions, formalisms and what has been considered as “correct” take many persons to live false situations, in which seeming is more important than being. Where people are accustomed to unfaithfulness towards themselves because they deny what they feel.
