Adelaide in Four Movements
Mankind has debated the essence of 'Soul' since the beginnings of philosophical thought. To have a soul is to be individual - but what if it was not so simple? What if four people shared one soul? Would they agree to lose their identity for the sake of a calm life, or fight for the right to be themselves?
Four little girls were born in the same area of Dublin in December 1986. They were healthy, happy and full of promise. Their mothers named them all "Adelaide". By March 2011 three of them would be dead. Two of the girls were murdered, one committed suicide. None of them showed any psychopathology, they came from secure homes. They had no logical reason for turning on each other and fighting to the death.
The reason they did so, was because they shared the same soul. Tragically each girl had a sense of what made her unique and had the determination to fight for it. This is their story.
