The Perfect Circle

ThePerfectCircle_web

Ivano and Meris don’t know each other. They are guests in a hospice for terminally ill persons, struggling to catch the last flashes of life. Meris runs in with her lovely husband, Mario, and dreams to go back home, even only for one day, to sit in the garden with him and talk about silly things. Ivano, enraged with the world, kicks everyone out from his room under the patient look of his wife Carla, a tough woman with eyes full with tears that she never cries. Meris and Ivano are not going gently “into that good night”. But whoever does?!
THE PERFECT CIRCLE intertwines two love stories and the urge to find a meaning to life when death is around the corner. But maybe no one ever goes away for good, as the never-ending cycle of water teaches us.
