Fleeing from the past, Blanche invades the home of her sister Stella and brother-in-law Stanley. With her provocations and manipulations she sets in motion an exciting game of poker. A game in which eroticism and hatred, reality and fantasy, desire and fear of abandonment compete for precedence, and in which the astute, sexually liberated and post-modern Blanche and the traditionally and patriarchal thinking Stanley come together against each other. A confrontation that gets out of hand and leads to psychological disruption of the four players and ultimately to an act of despair. In De Vroedt's version of A Streetcar Named Desire, Stanley is played by an actor of Moroccan descent. It exacerbates the conflict between the immigrant Stanley and the sisters Stella and Blanche, an impoverished elite.
