A wandering voice is able to invade any matter, solid, liquid, or gaseous, and it decides for the first time to invade a woman’s body. From this experience it narrates what it feels as a subject, what “it” pretends to feel, what is unfathomable in itself, what its image is to the others, and probes what a body means as a social construction.
