A little girl and her mother live in a plain suburb. Her mother calls her Nancy, but the girl is not convinced. Her friends are the only ones who understand her, telling her she is a princess called Fortuna and must find her way back to her planet. However, an unspeakable secret shadows their lives.
- "Coming across as something like "The Double Life of Veronique" filtered through the dark imagination of David Lynch, it establishes debut feature director Nicolangelo Gelormini as a fresh new voice in Italian cinema... This isn’t a traditional fairy tale, but arthouse in service of profoundly dark emotions. Simply put, this is one of the most haunting films of the year."
- "A kind of cubist, surreal dark and dreamlike horror story, seen from a child’s point of view... A surreal, complex, risky film that will divide audiences, but whose emotional impact is undeniable, and which requires some time to settle down and be understood."
