Andreas and Alessandro (Claudio Segaluscio and Carmine Fabbricatore) are two friends who have known each other since childhood.
Now that they have grown up, they study at universities in different cities, but they always spend the summer together in the place where they were born: a seaside resort that regularly fills up with tourists every year.
The two men have opposing characteristics. Andreas is taciturn and diffident, while Alessandro is expansive and optimistic. Andreas is lonely and without many sexual experiences. Alessandro has a life full of friends – and is already engaged to a girl.
With Summer now coming to an end, both Andreas and Alessandro will soon return to the city to resume their college lives. But before leaving, Andreas decides to give Alessandro a gift. He leaves an envelope full of printed selfies in his friend’s mailbox, some of which are dedicated on the back, hoping that Alessandro will finally be able to notice the love that Andreas always has tried to hide.
A touching 17-minute short film from Italian writer-director Marius Gabriel Stancu, It’s Just in My Head is now available on Dekkoo. Watch the trailer below.
