As punishment, Helen also revokes her daughter’s inheritance rights, leaving Isabelle with nothing, except for her grief and the pain over losing her child. Isabelle then marries Michael Gouder, father to her long lost son, together they concieve two other children
On the other hand, Pierre Degabriele is a wealthy and ruthless businessman of American origin, husband to Grace Degabriele, father to Jake and the spoiled self-centred, non-identical twins Vanessa and Valeria.
Grace Degabriele was once a waitress who seduced Pierre and married him. She then raised her twin daughters Vanessa and Valeria and has a deep affection for her first son Jake. As the years went by, Pierre’s love for Grace turned into indifference.
Unaware of each other, both families are connected and hell is about to break lose when Isabelle discovers that her son Daniel is suffering from a terminal illness…one which Michael battled and survived years ago.
Siġra tad-Demm is intertwined by surprises from beginning to end. Although it has a humouristic grip which holds your attention and almost leads you to believe that this is a relaxing play, it starts to slowly introduce the problems of life which may not have a solution.
