The Mechanics of Things

DIRECTOR: Alessandra Celesia

Tito, the stray cat of a filmmaker struggling with her own invisible scars, falls from the 8th floor and ends up paralysed. Together, they embark on a journey to China, searching for regeneration that has to do with the soul as much as with the body.
