Stoccolma

We are in the middle of preparations for a departure.
An unmissable job offer.
Driven by the desire to start living his life, Lluvia intends to go to the West and rely on something totally new.
Sasha is helping her to pack the suitcase, they're old friends and she would never have spent that day away from her. No matter how much they try to hide it, one breathes tension and unhappiness. The idea of ​​losing their certainties is destabilizing.
As they fill the suitcase, the memories of their past moments emerge, giving shape to their complex relationship of missed appointments and unspoken words. A slow immersion in the motions of the soul.

Maybe this is too much for them, maybe they have to do something. Do you say how important they are for each other? Confess your feelings at the cost of any reaction?
This "now or never" can be an input, a turn or a total psychological demolition.
Yet everything is a work of conviction dictated by the heart, everything is a desperate attempt to stay and love, but what is the limit between love and obsession?

Research that has led them to wonder how this syndrome can manifest itself in many relationships: in the family, between young couples, between friends without necessarily falling into the clinical case and extreme treated in the above mentioned text.
They have thus come to the conclusion that this issue, apparently so far removed from everyday life, is instead inherent in many of our century's relationships.
