FRATELLI DI SANGUE

Three brothers. A basement. The same basement where they used to hide as children. The rest of the family is making Christmas lunch upstairs. The three brothers have not seen each other nor celebrated Christmas together for ten years. There is a radio in the basement. An old, dusty radio tuned in to a station broadcasting uncensored telephone calls.

Three brothers. A basement. The same basement where they used to hide as children. The rest of the family is making Christmas lunch upstairs. The three brothers have not seen each other nor celebrated Christmas together for ten years. There is a radio in the basement. An old, dusty radio tuned in to a station broadcasting uncensored telephone calls. It is a kind of 24-hours confessional, where everyone tells about things that cannot be said. “It’s an innocent game, let’s call!” So they start playing an odd Russian roulette, where the person drawn will have to call the radio. But what happens when the Christmas night of ten years ago is mentioned? What happens when everyone starts revealing, call after call, their real nature? What happens when the past becomes an obsession?
