Wishing on a star
A simple, but effective way, to change your destiny by travelling on the day of your birthday.
Luciana, a Neapolitan astrologer, promises her clients a method to make their wishes come true. All they need to do is take a birthday trip to a certain destination to be reborn under a new sky. Whether it’s Taipei, Beirut, or a nearby village, during these birthday journeys, the protagonists discover what they really desire. It’s a bittersweet exploration of the struggles we all face in our quest for life change.
