L'ATTESA

In the vast rooms of an ancient villa, Anna spends her days in solitude. Only the footsteps of Pietro, the handyman, break the silence. Unexpectedly, Jeanne arrives, a young woman saying she is the girlfriend of Anna’s son, Giuseppe. He has invited her to spend a few days together but he’s not there. Soon he will be back, says Anna, unable to reveal an unspeakable truth. As the days go by, the two women slowly get to know each other and together they wait for Easter Day when Giuseppe will finally come home.
