Yerma is desperate for a child, but her husband Juan shies from her touch. How can she reconcile her urge for motherhood, maintain her sense of honor, and still do her job without going mad? Set in an elite university, YERMA IN THE DESERT focuses on the custodial and public safety staff who clean up the mess and tell no tales in a Trumpian dystopia where personal grudges lead to deportation and worse. Even in this dry place, Yerma craves the wet closeness of love.
