Logline

STAY STILL

These young women are an odd couple. Julie is quick-witted and stubborn. She celebrates idleness and even voluntarily checks into a psychiatric clinic. Nurse Agnes, on the other hand, is always eager to do the right thing and to meet everyone's expectations of her, which is not always easy. When the two of them accidentally meet one day, odds are they won't get along. But they quickly feel attracted to one another, despite their enormous differences. Together, they start seeing the world in a new way. This is a star-studded tragicomedy with an Italian vibe.
This film is also part of the CineCoPro Competition
