Winner of the Lanterna Magica Award in Venice last year, Carlo Sironi’s first full feature film, follows Ermanno and Lena, two strangers at first, who have to pretend to be a couple to mislead Italian authorities. Lena is pregnant and she came to Italy to sell her baby to Ermanno’s uncle, Fabio. As Ermanno assumes the role of the father, an unexpected bond grows between him and Lena. What if those two were actually the perfect family?
“Wonderful directorial debut from Carlo Soroni with his understated, authentic and emotionally involving story of two young people brought together in exceptional circumstances” – Adrian Wootton, curator of Cinema Made in Italy, CEO of Film London and the British Film Commission
