  Bianca come il latte
  WHITE AS MILK, RED AS BLOOD
Plot: Leo is a typical sixteen-year-old: he likes to chat with friends, play soccer, joyride on his scooter and listen to his iPod. School is agonizing to him. Then, a new and “different” history and philosophy teacher arrives: he encourages the students to live deeply and follow their dreams. Leo feels he possesses the strength of a lion but is held back by a terrifying nemesis: the color white. Everything in his life that represents deprivation and loss is white. On the other hand, red is the color of love, passion, and blood; red is the color of the girl of his dreams, Beatrice.

Eventually, Leo discovers that she has an illness related to the color white. His fear leads him to dig deep into himself, bleed and be reborn in order to understand that dreams cannot die; he must find the courage to believe in something greater than himself.

Based on the book of the same name by Alessandro D'Avenia.
