Short drama, 14 minutes
Director: Andrea Pallaoro
An elderly woman and her son struggle to coexist in a house that shelters a spectacular menagerie of birds. Surrendering to their codependence, inside a world that bears no exit, they go about their bedtime ritual resisting and succumbing to each other’s needs. Within the everydayness of their gestures and movements lurks a secret, and the anticipation of what might come is the dawning question.
