A WHITE BALLAD

by Stefano Odoardi

synopsis

In an apartment, the life of an elderly couple, married for many years, evolves like an old record player: slow and repetitious. The woman suffers from an incurable disease and has little time left to live. They have always lived quietly, but now even more so. Words can no longer express meanings. The presence of death makes every single action between the elderly couple, both important and definite.
