Attention please: Doire's pronouns are They/Them. Carolina uses She/Her.

Once upon a time there was a street performer in Paris named Doire that performed under the name "Ridiculo".

Everyday they would gather a crowd, enchanted by their impeccable acrobatics accompanied by magical tunes.

Until one day they are approached by Carolina, an enthusiastic painting student. Wanting to understand who is behind the art she requests the performer's aid for her final assignment.

Because of that they meet more and more often in cafés and the atelier and eventually Doire hesitantly invites her to their small apartment.

Because of that Carolina wanders the room and finds a photo album. She carelessly opens the album and a blank envelope falls out. The letter inside exposes sorrow, guilt and self-hatred to the mother.

Because of that Doire shouts and kicks Carolina out of the flat in a mental breakdown. They lock themselves inside for several weeks.

Until finally Doire finds the courage to apologize to their friend and explain the situation. The two immediately pack and travel to meet Doire's mother, who accepts them back with open arms.

And ever since "Ridiculo" was needed no more. Doire fully embraced both parts of themselves.

The moral of the story is: you will find healing in vulnerability. There is always someone who loves you for who you are.
