A taxi driver in Naples reminisces about his brother who went to Tibet to practice Buddhism and never returned. During one of his rides, he listens to a radio show called ‘’The Art of Happiness’’ and ponders the meaning of life. Do we have just one life or are we living again and again forever?

MUBI's take

Reminiscent of Richard Linklater’s Waking Life, Alessandro Rak’s soul-searching feature debut ruminates on lost connections and the deeper meanings of life. The evocative animation lends the beautiful streets of Naples a spiritual and mystical aura, mirroring the effervescence of past memories.
