Il est plus facile pour un chameau



Federica is rich, too rich.
This privilege imprisons her and stops her from dealing with daily life like a real adult. Her boyfriend is ready to start a family. Her former lover unexpectedly shows up. Her family is disconnected from normal, everyday life. Their conflictual relationship is further destabilized by the death of her father.
Overwhelmed by her approaching inheritance, by her tangled relationships with those around her and by the weight of a haunting guilt, Federica seeks comfort in the imaginary. Wide-awake dreams where reality becomes perfect and wonderful...
