Rossana lives with borderline personality disorder, a mental health condition in which the person experiences sudden and intense unstable emotional reactions. As a result, the thought of dying or at least ceasing to exist seems like a good way out for a (black) body and a (restless) mind, which persistently feels ill-suited. To dance, create, cry, hug, smile, sing, medicate: the film operates through joint fragments of a body-mind within a disorder in search of well-being, even if only for a fleeting moment. *(M.M)
