On the isolated parking lot of a small provincial town, a funfair sets up. The decor that takes shape contrasts with the surrounding political and social climate: among the crunching of the rides and the smell of sweets, there is an urgent need to forget oneself. But you have to be quick because the colored bulbs never stay in one place for long. In this joyful ephemeral theater where everything seems to be allowed, director Paola Valentin takes her place among the fairground people and unpacks her own tricks to prolong the dream and ward off fears.
