This fictional trial fills in the bare outline of a real legal procedure in a Zone historic trial, highly problematic, which led to shifts in the political terrain. In the work of imagination the white womans retraction of the allegation of rape comes as a consequence of a nightmare induced by the addition of an ingredient into her lunch by the West-Indian staff of the mental hospital in which she is placed for psychosomatic laryngitis.

In the dream she is tried by the rainforest creatures of Panama and brought to a high level of conscience by the nightmare lynching of her Jamaican lover.
