Marisol’ is set in an apocalyptic reality where the guardian angels have decided to wage war against a god who is close to death and has become senile.

When Marisol is visited by her guardian angel for the first time to tell her of their plan of rebellion, the angel encourages her to lead the rebellion against god on earth. When Marisol refuses, the angel suppresses her and says her final goodbye. Marisol is then left alone on earth to fend for herself, and forced to live without her guardian angel, as she faces the apocalyptic events brought about by the war of the heavens.


“Most powerful of all are the words. The lines, brilliantly translated and delivered, have left me a lot to ponder on.”
