Sometimes love can become a trap. Sometimes love is a calculation.
This short film is about an Ukrainian twenty-something Mykola who in the course of his internship in Rome falls in love with Geneviève, a student from Rwanda. (See Libreria Griot: a sketch of Rome Multicultural) Mykola’s internship is almost over and his residence permit is about to expire. So, he devises a plan-to use the affection of Lucrezia, a girl from his company in Rome has for him and secure the EU citizenship for himself.
But our Ukie hero does not know that he has, actually, prepared a trap for himself and he is about to lose everything he has striven for in Italy. (See Hic Sunt Ukrainians: Europe’s East in the Tales of Its Young Africanist – an excerpt) This film is in Italian.
