“Those messages are crumbs, filling an empty pot, it’s just the beginning. Esmeralda is a fatal beautiful lady like Morgan le Fay, she’s offering her mystery without knowing why. Paolo is the fearless man who wants to conquer quietly. They look like two teenagers.”
Esmeralda, a young successful interior designer, can’t sleep on a hot summer night. She’s bored and she thrusts her arm for-ward to take her phone on the bedside table. She starts scroll-ing through posts on Facebook, without thinking about any-thing, it’s just a game. She touches the phone by mistake and she adds “a new friend”, Paolo Marotta, a school friend, who has become a warehouse worker, a loser, a night wanderer, living a life that doesn’t suit him. That’s how it starts the illness of the modern world: the chat. Virtually, they talk about their life and their bad moments; they reveal their secrets, feelings, desires, hopes, temptations and forbidden dreams…. The si-lence of a virtual world lived through text messages becomes a necessity, an unintelligible addiction, what will it happen to them?
