SYNOPSIS: Everything is surrounded by livid blue. The warm sun in summer’s beginning appears for the first time, to accompany the awakening of a silent and immobile nature. In a wide valley, between white rocks and dark grass, naked bodies, wrecks, residues and twisted sounds make the scenario looking post apocalyptic, while it only is the result of a rave from the night before. In the woods nearby, Clara, a 24 years old girl from the roman suburbs, aching and disenchanted, with constantly swollen and sleepy eyes, walks holding the phone in one hand, when she encounters a deer. In the hope of capturing that enchanting image, she points the phone towards the animal, like a hunter takes up his shotgun. While trying to catch that image, the phone turns off, leaving behind only a doubt and a sweet memory. A journey through a day starts now, from the woods to the suburbs. The research of a phone charger that will lead a girl to confront different characters, remarking the memory of an encounter, making it more unforgettable than before. A research that goes on through a corrupted memory. All the work of a day, from the sunrise till dark night. And over there, summer suburbs. Dusty and unresponsive. As scorching lime.
