Un homme mène une lifestyles en apparence toute lisse. Mais un jour, soit parce qu'une déception, un revers, un deuil..., a brisé ses défenses et détruit ses appuis, soit parce qu'il éprouve le besoin de partir à l. a. recherche de lui-même, il se trouve engagé dans une errance au terme de laquelle, bien des années plus tard, après avoir parcouru un interminable chemin, il charisma le sentiment de s'être découvert, d'avoir rencontré sa vérité. Cette pièce a pour thème l'aventure de los angeles quête de soi et de los angeles radicale transformation qu'elle entraîne. Cette aventure est longue, douloureuse. Au début, elle est vécue dans los angeles confusion, l. a. détresse, une angoisse extrême. Loin de tout repère, tout chemin, l'être avance à tâtons dans des contrées inconnues, désertiques, où s'enchevêtrent los angeles peur de se perdre et le désir de conquérir un accord avec soi et le monde. Contre toute attente survient pourtant l'instant décisif du lâcher-prise. L'être renonce à tout vouloir, consent à déposer les armes. C'est alors qu'il se trouve en mesure de se laisser guider et reconstruire par des forces qui vont faire de lui un être clair, unifié, apte à se tourner vers autrui.
