Synopsis: She wants to forget Gabriel. She starts mutilating all the items that make her to remember him: books, music, movies, his house... even her own clitoris. Everything. 'To forget about Gabriel I would have to cry so much, to the point he becomes salt and water in a folded napkin after blowing my nose'. She stated, before taking us to the last level of destruction: a cemetery-like room with items and fiction characters, and right there, among the ruins, she finds something: a plot twist... a secret.
