HAND IN THE CAP by Adriano Morelli 

"Sonia is a forty year old woman, a strong mother. She lives at home with her son Andrea, a twenty-year-old boy with severe motor and neurological damage. Andrea is partly disconnected from reality, abandoned to his forced solitude, but all that surrounds him excites. Andrea feels the need to masturbate. Sonia desperately looks for ways to make it happy son, satisfy his need. Nothing seems to be effective, not even the help of one Romanian prostitute, who makes him so nervous that he screams in the darkness of his small room of pain and fear. Andrea doesn't know and will never know, but asks for love. He feels the physical need for being masturbated, he feels that thrill where even a paralytic's legs would shake. Sonia masturbates him, and his scream of pain subsides into an orgasm."

AFFITTASI VITA by Stefano Usardi

Michele, in full creativity crisis, is unable to finish the fresco on which his artistic career depends. Abandoned by the rich girlfriend, he is forced to leave his home with a small sum of money given to him in case of financial difficulties. He finds himself in search of inspiration, without livelihood and invaded by extravagant neighbors of his newly rented house. Rosalia, a folk singer, waiting for the necessary documents to free her daughter forced into a psychiatric hospital due to bureaucratic trappings. I can't wait to meet up with Andrea, a neighbor in search of success and Salvo, an actor in search of fame who lives reciting his own personal life. Completely desperate, the "neighbors" will change Michele's convictions and make him smile again. This however implies compromises for everyone. In the background, a scene from Trieste, each time certainty turns out to be an illusion, it is just a large dose of fantasy for the protagonists to escape the problems that afflict them. Nothing is as it really seems, from sudden returns and changes of identity, even the last certainty seems to vanish.
