TROIS is not a story.

 

It is only a delicate dive into the life of a few men and women.

We are born and our personalities begin to mould under the influence of family, education, society and culture.

 

Skills, habits, desires, genes… We mature.  We become man and woman.

But, what are a man and a woman like?  Or, what they should be like? Is man the one to rule?  Is he an embodiment of power and support?  Shall features such as fragility, sensitivity and devotion be attributed to him as well?

And what is a woman like? Is she the weak and the ever-caring one? Or, does she have the ability to lead and make decisions?

And there is also someone else here – the small creature within us, the child, pure and accepting life with amazement.  We find its traces within us through our entire life…

We are man and woman and child in one; we are TROIS.
