GIFFONI50PLUS - 21.31 JULY 2021



Category: Edition 2021

A father, suffering from Alzheimer's, receives one of his six children each day of the week. The only weapon they have to “defeat”, in part, this terrible condition is to show their love for him. The same scene is repeated every day. The father seems to have a flash, a vision, a little memory that lights up in his restless mind, while his sons seem to be unable to grasp its meaning.
