Atlas

by Niccolò Castelli

The long and painful struggle of Allegra, a survivor of a dramatic event that cost the lives of three of her friends, to overcome fear.

Allegra, a passionate climber, survived a terrorist attack that killed three of her friends. Crushed and consumed by guilt and hatred, she is no longer herself. Her loved ones are helpless when confronted with her suffering. To regain confidence and love, she must embark on a challenging journey and question herself. She meets Arad, a young refugee from the Middle East, which leads her to an encounter-confrontation with the Other.
