LUNA tells the story of several lives, lives that intertwine over the course of a long night. Nicolò and Camilla are two young lovers who have not yet managed to open up to each other, out of fear, pride, insecurities. Camilla plays the piano to dare a sense of emptiness, Nicolò has grown up too quickly, he is always tough but inside he suffers, and does not know how to share his insecurities. Luna, on the other hand, is a tormented girl who has lost her mother, very lonely, deep, thoughtful. An outsider who spends her days walking around the city with headphones in her ears. Will these three existences meet by pure chance (or destiny?) and their lives will never be the same ever since. A music box will be the object that will unite these stories, a sort of magical door that will give access to something unknown and mysterious.
