Drama, by Matteo Piacenti, Corrado Bonicelli, Italy, 2020.
Viola is a lonely teenager who feels out of place in the world around her, inadequate and imperfect. The comfort and support of her parents and friends are of no use. Art is the only way she has to express herself: like a colorful mosaic, Viola represents her own world and her way of seeing reality, one drawing at a time. Then she meets Giacomo, her new deskmate. From the relationship between the two, something opens up in the shell that imprisons Viola in loneliness and social isolation. A new path opens up for her in this difficult adolescent phase, which leads her to realize something more about herself and the reality around her.
