The synopsis of the film
Billy (19) is a former child prodigy who invented and hosts a successful music podcast at age 9. Today he lives with his eccentric mother Regina, is secretly in love with one of her neighbors, only sees children between 8 and 12 years old and doesn’t know what to do with his life. Until he meets his childhood idol, Zippo, a rocker who has been missing for years. Their similarities will lead them to find a way to face life. But not always what we have longed for then goes as we would like…
The words of the director
Emilia Mazzacurati, presenting the project, declared: “With this story I feel the need to express the path of change that a loss can induce. How the end makes life precious and how the person who leaves leaves behind a treasure. That death is part of life, that sadness and happiness must coexist to form a full existence. It takes effort to turn adversity and one’s mistakes into something good, and it takes effort to be happy. The first step to being happy (or even just approaching an idea of happiness) is to try to make peace with yourself and with those aspects of us that resist the change we would like“.
