The joining of these two darkened hearts brings-on a major decision that could be salvation for both … even just for a little while.

Afert receiving tumultuous acclaim in her native country, Austrian entrepreneur, Yarina Gurtner, has chosen this engrossing drama to premiere here in New York City. “I am the International in Midtown International Theatre Festival!” she said with a laugh.
