That was almost nine months ago and Maria is still awaiting her lover’s return and the arrival of her child. As she spends her days preparing herself mentally and physically for the fact that very soon she will have to give birth, alone and unaided, Montana itself begins to infiltrate her mind and the overbearing solitude starts to encroach upon her grasp of reality.
