Yerma longs for a child with every fibre of her being. When presented with Juan for a husband she takes him not for love, but for the chance to start a family. Now that is denied to her, the world ceases to make sense. Locked in a small town inhabited by smaller minds, Yerma begins to push against the rules, searching for truth and assistance in people and places that are not considered socially acceptable. Her innocent actions send a ripple through a community whose twisted minds fashion it into a tidal wave. Scorned and misunderstood by her people and faced with the reality of a life spent childless with a man she does not desire, Yerma commits the ultimate act of rebellion.
