The secret service gradually infiltrates the lush life of May-May, an ambitious scientist and mother to a young boy. Her world falls apart when she is forcibly admitted to a mental hospital, where she is diagnosed with schizophrenia.
May-May seems to be living in two worlds: the normal world where everyone goes about their day-to-day lives, and another world, the world of the secret service. It is during this period of her life that her mission arises, which she still pursues to this day: achieving world peace.
With the love and help of her family, the support of caregivers in the mental health sector, and by following her calling, May-May eventually recovers. She now wants to contribute to “A World in Which All Children Can Play”.
