Synopsis: The story is framed in Panama, the theatre that premiered the devastating failure of French entrepreneurship and the exhilarating success of American engineering in the late nineteenth century. From Day of Birth touches deep into the fiber of human emotions and is placed in a time and a country that to many of us still remains exotic. It captures the essence of a strip of land full of contrasts: the glittery chandeliers that whisper to their reflection on polished marble floors; the flat, hot, humid, lowlands drowned in jungle, that welcome the tides; the rugged highlands dressed with thick, dense forests that embrace the sky. In verse and prose, From Day of Birth is a journey of growth, passion, defiance, and vulnerability felt by the people, who, like vessels crossing the canal, arrived to this land of sensuous topography attracted by its fabled geographical position and stayed to give birth to a nation.
