Synopsis

In the narrow kitchen of a family home, two women in their forties are talking. Suddenly, one of them forgets herself and kisses the other. After the intimacy of this encounter, reality soon resurfaces. The two women are married, one to the other’s brother.

Comment

This graduation project expresses a desire to talk about a new form of sensuality and sexuality in two women in their forties who are not looking for anything but who nevertheless find themselves animated by troubling emotions that they do not want to keep silent because it awakens a part of themselves they still have to discover – a desire that is not a need to be met but rather an attempt to rediscover oneself.
