An unexpected storm strands a family, gathered together to celebrate the 50th wedding anniversary of two elderly parents, Pietro and Alba, on the small island of Ischia in Southern Italy. The numerous relatives are forced to live together under the same roof for two days and two nights with no way out. The lives of the siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews, become ineluctably intertwined, lingering between a past which rehashes old and unforgotten disputes, a present which rekindles unresolved conflicts, and a future which appears to be uncertain for everyone. The island morphs into a labyrinth of passion and everyone must reckon with their own personal, sentimental, family, or professional circumstances.
Before A casa tutti bene, we will screen The Place of Happiness (15:00), by Aliosha Massine.
The short is one of the twenty finalists of our new Short Film Competition.
