SYNOPSIS

«Cronofobia» is the story of a relationship between two different kind of self-imposed isolations, that slowly find a way to communicate. It is the tale of two prisoners, two strangers establishing an “intimate distance”. 
It’s a movie dealing with contemporary obsessions like the one for rating, passing time and, above all, with simulation being a dominant characteristic in our lives, affecting the way we relate to other people. 
«Cronofobia» is ultimately about how fiction and make-believe are essential to experience reality and finally be able to face the person we see every day in the mirror. It’s a survival mechanism: if we don’t lie to ourselves to some extent, sometimes life is just too painful.
