Experiencing Interruptions?

Esame di lealtà (Examination of Loyalty)

The author of the film finds ideas and improvisation in many boxes that he kept hidden for a long time. Through the characters in this story he wants to free them. He decides to use the metaphor of the move and some atavistic themes as a trace of an inquiry that is divided between questions and answers that will lead us to the story in which the boundary between reality, fiction and mastery is lost
