It’s Just Another Day.

Gabriele is a boy of just twenty, suffocated by the provincial reality in which he was born and raised. Orphan of his mother, he is forced to constantly take care of his sick father, helped by his maternal aunt. The meeting with Giorgio, one of his countrymen, who has just moved to Rome, stirs Gabriele’s apathy and inner malaise. The two fall in love and start a long-distance relationship. Giorgio asks him to join him in Rome, in order to start a coexistence; but Gabriele is not yet ready for such an important step.
