"Las confidentes" centers around two women who get together to tell each other stories, but who suddenly become their own characters. Over the course of a day and a night, they establish a duel of stories -- originally made of dreams and personal memories, they become complicated and incorporate enchantments, perversions, witches and fortune tellers in nightmarish mansions, as well as the doubles of Humphrey Bogart and Peter Lorre in Casablanca. The fifteen stories that comprise this work create a fascinating plot about the darkness that we have inside and a radiant chronicle of the trance that occurs when we tell stories.
