An extremely contemporary lyrical form, Violet speaks of the collapse of the world and the current ecological disaster. It stages the "end of time and space" as seen from the confined space of a kitchen, that of Violet, a young woman who experiences the ordeal as an inner collapse. Suddenly, the hours begin to disappear. Time evaporates. Outside, gunshots erupt, fires and floods appear. So Violet decides to build a boat. But will the others agree to follow her?
