The relief felt in the past becomes a void in the present, that can only be perceived by a level o maturity.

The story is presented by the vision of a woman that searches for relief throughout her entire existence.

Her craziness mingles with the purest feelings, like love, and all of this is personified within her mind.

Director Biography - Leonardo Aiello

Leonardo Aiello Martins (October 6th of 1996) is a movie and advertising director. He was borned in São Paulo. And, when he was still a kid, he moved to a small town. After a couple of years, he felt that that place wasn't enough for his curiosity for the grandiosity and disquietude of his mind

So, at the age of 17, he moved back to São Paulo to study Radio and TV. He fell in love with the business, and looked for knowledge in every aspect of it, from the musical until post-production of videos.

He then began his professional life as a advertising editor, in which he acquired a plastic and esthetic look, that still is very present in his work. Also, he has photography as an ally in the narrative synthesis of his movies, which are always looking to pass fast and objectively a message, being easy adaptations for media.

Leonardo already had worked with funnier narratives, but today looks forward to doing more visceral and dense works, that permeate between philosophical questions about id 'til indigestible things loaded with an emotional charge.
