  BALANCING ACT
Plot: Giulio is forty years old and leads an apparently peaceful life. He lives in a rented apartment, has a steady job, a car purchased in installments, a rebellious but nice daughter, a sweet son who’s a dreamer, and a faithful and loving wife. She discovers Giulio’s affair, leaves him and his fairy-tale life suddenly crumbles. But what happens to a couple who “dare” separate from each other in this day and age?
Through a wide array of events that are at times tragic and at times ironic, the film takes us hand-in-hand into the world of a man who suddenly discovers how thin the line between well-being and poverty truly is.
