From Odette to Hélène, then to Léonie, Ludivine, Sarah, Luce and finally to Aimée, Loup's mother.
It would seem that a curse of tragedy and death decimated this family in the heart of the Ardennes Forest. But Loup is courageous, she wants to end the bitter legacy of fate and break the chain of abandoned childhoods.
Following Littoral (Tideline) and Incendies (Scorched), Forests is the third part of Wajdi Mouawad's critically acclaimed dramatic quartet set in the painful wake of the past century.
