In the labyrinth of love a game of contradictions takes place: two women fight a duel with their feelings; one is reason and the other is the heart… but the labyrinth proliferates until it culminates in the ritual of disorderly blood and overexcited viscera..

Director's Statement

My movie tries about the love story between two women that keep a special intensity in their loving feelings. The freedom of your love is the most important in your relationships. My movie also tries about the nostalgia of the first lovers, about the memories of the first loving experiences.
