Dear Diary

The story of a typical teenager, vexed by his parents’ expectations, suffocated by the life-style thrust upon him, tormented by his incapacity to look around him and to look at himself. A descent toward a void, emptied of affection, rusting away inside and a burning desire for just nothingness. Then the turning point, the rediscovery of self and of others, the pleasure of small things. A slow climbing back, with no magic potions or sudden twists of the plot. A collective diary where experiences merge into a single shared story, without heroes, surprise elements or special effects. Carried out with the former drug addicts of the Day Therapeutic Community of Ser. T., the video is the result of a therapeutic-rehabilitative work-shop.
