GIFFONI EXPERIENCE 2012 - 14.24 July

Sections & Films


Category: Edition 2012

15-year-old Linda and Sevilay have a problem. It is not their different cultural backgrounds or the sterile apartment building in the suburbs: it's their screwed up parents. If only the girls could run away. At Linda's birthday party everything escalates!


Linda e Sevilay, 15 anni, hanno un problema. E non si tratta del loro diverso background culturale, né dello sterile condominio di periferia in cui vivono, ma piuttosto dei loro dannati genitori. Se solo potessero fuggire via. Alla festa per il compleanno di Linda la situazione esplode.
