Based on the novel Candide by Voltaire

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"
