A Doll's House is a play written by Henrik Ibsen first published and performed in 1879. The main theme is about the destiny of a married woman and how her life collapses, in a society in which she has no opportunities to fulfill herself after being dominated by men.

We are located in a town in Norway around the year 1879. Nora Helmer is happily married to bank manager Torvard Helmer and they have three children. Torvard has risen through the ranks and will take over as bank manager.

A corrupt and unscrupulous employee named Nils Krogstad knows that he will be fired for his corrupt acts as soon as Torvard is promoted. He attempts to blackmail Nora to prevent her from being fired, but Torvard still won't give in to it.

They come to an agreement so that Nils's lover, named Kristine Linde, replaces him in the future but even so Nils will try to recover his life and ends up fulfilling his threats against Nora...

The title of the book refers to the fact that the protagonist, Nora, is a "doll", that is, a woman without will or judgment of her own.
