“Macerie” (Rubble) it’s a film about fear, insecurity, desires. A girl, in intimacy with another person, tells her phobia about water. But phobias generate phobias and trigger whirling thoughts. Starting from the terror of drowning, the protagonist reveals insecurities in a world full of chaos. External chaos, between endless roadworks and internal chaos, where doubts and desires reflect on themes such as love, family, motherhood, travel, death.
