Synopsis – A man used to work for an important American company, but he has just been fired. He is now unemployed and spends his days at home as his relationship with his wife crumbles. His wife and their monstrous child wake him up early one Sunday morning in order to go to the shopping mall and buy a new refrigerator - the ultimate symbol of “what used to be and is not anymore.” But the trip to the shopping mall will bring something unexpected. Performed in English.

Tommaso Avati - After completing a degree in Communications, Tommaso Avati started working as assistant director.

In 2008, he wrote the script and screenplay of "Quell’estate," a film directed by Guendalina Zampagli, which was presented at the Roma Film Festival.
