Through a narrating voice, speaking both English and Italian, a captivating music and extraordinary choreographies, the man portrays his inner fight by stopping himself, then moving, then dancing, then walking slowly again.
“New ways appear everyday.” | “New ways appear everyday, you cannot stop them, so you must choose wisely.” Getting shot, falling, then standing up again, as a metaphor of not keep tearing yourself apart, but keep going slowly, never look back and fight the breakdown.
“In an armour of scars I fight the illusion of my fears. I’m a warrior”. The warrior position, as shown in the trailer, a second before realizing that “right now, you are living the best time of your life”.
