We created a story with surrealistic elements. We follow a yound girl that finds the strength to embrace her uniqueness in a society that confronts her as a stranger. It’s an exploration journey of her strenght within her. The music video comes to fill out the song which is dynamic and refreshing. All the team is made up by professionals , from which each one gave 100% in his sector in order the result to be perfect.
