Summary

La novela que adapta la obra teatral revelación homónima de Bárbara Mestanza, que ha sacudido las tablas con su emotiva historia de abuso, denuncia y redención.
 
Cuando Barb entra en un local de masajes después de un día muy estresante buscando relajarse un poco, no imagina que las siguientes horas le cambiarán la vida para siempre. El masajista, de forma directa e impune, se propasa con ella y, paralizada, Barb es incapaz de resistirse.
 
Después del terrible episodio, la joven no solo tiene que lidiar con las secuelas del abuso, sino con la incomprensión de la gente a su alrededor que cuestiona su pasividad ante la agresión. Barb tratará de entender y superar la violencia que ha sufrido a través de la relación con su pareja y otros hombres, a través de la denuncia y el proceso judicial, y de las conversaciones y testimonios de otras mujeres que han sufrido ataques similares. ¿Tendrá éxito en su empeño? ¿Podrá perdonarse a sí misma?

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The novel that adapts Bárbara Mestanza’s break-out play of the same name, which has shaken the stage with her moving tale of abuse, complaint, and redemption.

When Barb walks into a massage shop wanting to relax a bit at the end of a very stressful day, little does she know that the next few hours will change her life forever. The masseur, directly and with impunity, forces himself on her. And Barb, petrified, is unable to fight back.
 
Following this terrible episode, the young woman not only has to deal with the aftermath of abuse, but with the lack of understanding from people around her, questioning her inaction in the face of aggression. Barb will try to understand and overcome the violence she suffered through her relationship with her boyfriend and other men, by filing a report and going through the legal proceedings, as well as conversations and the testimony of women who suffered similar attacks. Will she succeed in her endeavor? Will she ever forgive herself?
