Martina teaches creative writing workshops at a Caballito District apartment; a printer, a senior lady and her autistic son are the attendees. The literary universe appears unconnected to the external world until three new members join in; from there on imagination and reality soon get connected. Under the literature teacher’s blind eyes, that tiny middle class living room is where a failed involving a television diva and her starring columnist gets concocted. While Martina recommends books to stimulate her students’ creativity, instead of readers, they become protagonists of the stories told by the great police literature writers. Infants of Limbo (Niños del limbo) is a “doors” comedy which besides its apparent frivolity aims at reflecting on certain social groups’ blindness, conformism and isolation whereas it questions the fictitious reality some sectors live in as well as denouncing the limbo comfort that Argentine middle class has historically placed itself in.
