Me, Myself and Her (Io E Lei)
Something isn’t quite right in Marina and Federica’s relationship and it might take more than a new mattress to make it work. Such is the test of their relationship, too comfy and cozy, or firm enough to withstand trial and error? In this lighthearted love story, Marina and Federica rekindle love in a bit of a drought. After five years together, they share the same apartment, elevator, and face cream. They laugh, they fight, they put up with each other’s families, but even so, they’re are not sure if they’re still a couple or not. In this charming romantic comedy they try to figure it out.
