A woman wanders through the city looking for herself and her lost memory...

DIRECTOR'S NOTES:
The movie, shooted in the suburbs of Verona (Italy), deals with the difficult and delicate issue of violence against women, facing it from the point of view of the search for the own identity and lost dignity. The protagonist is indeed a woman suffering from a severe form of amnesia following a sexual violence and she doesn't remember anything of her life and her past, wandering around the city like a homeless person, in the grip of fear and despair that a similar experience can trigger. Listless and exhausted, she hides and avoids any kind of contact, becoming almost invisible to the eyes of others and living in a sort of limbo in which time slowly slips on her. The ending remains open to the possibility to start again, living with new self-awareness.
