Based on the novel Candide by Voltaire

El joven protagonista, CŠndide, de bien expresivo nombre, practica un optimismo ciego guiado por su tutor, el Doctor Pangloss, que le asegura que todo es para bien en el mejor de los mundos posibles. Llevando a su bien sonante novia, Cunegunda, de la mano, y al referido Doctor Pangloss, CŠndide viaja a Lisboa, ParŪs, Buenos Aires y hasta al mŪtico El Dorado, descubriendo a su paso la maldad, la bajeza, la envidia, el sufrimiento y hasta el crimen. Despojado de su idealismo, termina por recalar en Venecia acompaŮado por la inefable Cunegunda, y sus ķltimas palabras en la obra, consagrado a su jardŪn, proclaman: ďY antes de morir tratemos / de dar sentido a esta vida. / No somos sabios ni buenos: / hagŠmoslo lo mejor que sepamos"
