Una lírica obra teatral repleta de imágenes dramáticas que se enfoca en la extraordinaria historia de amor entre un hombre con inclinaciones poéticas llamado Florentino Ariza y una mujer sensual, práctica y evasiva llamada Fermina Daza. La acción de la obra atraviesa cincuenta años y la historia se presenta en una serie de escenas repletas de movimiento, poesía, canciones y momentos de exuberante dramatismo. Un audaz tour-de-force teatral para cuatro actores.
