Until Sbornia Do Us Part

by Otto Guerra – Brasil , 2013

(93', Original with Italian subtitles)

What happens to a small country when the wall that separates it from the rest of the world falls? The events that follow the accidental fall of the wall that isolated Sbórnia from the Continent strike the people from the peaceful and far distant land with the winds of a modern city. The conflicts caused by the violent cultural shock mess up the lives of our protagonists Kraunus and Pletskaya – two odd Sbornian musicians. As a result of continental interference on their habits, some Sbornians are reminded of forgotten believes, so as to stir them up to rescue their identity.
