2020

Short Film – Comedy
A short film by Elena Beatrice & Daniele Lince
Starring Erica Del Bianco, Dario Leone and Angela Finocchiaro

After a big fight, a couple wakes up with an unbelievable problem: he can’t speak and she can’t hear anything. Doctors and exams are useless. A female Zen Master and a very special plant come to their aid.

Dopo un litigio in cui volano parole grosse, una coppia si risveglia con un problema. Anzi, due: lui non riesce più a parlare e lei non può più sentire. Medici ed esami non servono a nulla e in loro soccorso arriverà una Maestra Zen con una piantina un po’ speciale.
