Tungrus (pronounced: toongroos) is a short documentary that observes a week in the peculiar lives of a middle-class suburban Mumbai household. What was once a home like a million others in the city, turns topsy-turvy when the eccentric patriarch brings home a baby chick for his cats to play with, much to the exasperation of his family.
What follows is an alternatingly absurd, nerve-jangling and heart-warming set of accounts about the latest addition, from each member of the household. The once adorable chick has survived his early days and grown into a hell-raising, willful rooster – forever taking up a touch too much of their space, defecating on their spotless floors, bullying their cats, crowing at ungodly hours, and generally making life in the already-crowded apartment unlivable.

Edo (Italy) by Lorenzo Tardella
EDO is a story about the end of summer, the season of downtime and the light-heartedness, which sits between spring and autumn and always takes us from one place to another, while making us "different" to what we used to be.
It's Edoardo's last day of childhood, the end of the games.
For the first time ever, life puts him in front of a problem.
One he has to face by himself.

Yvonnes (Italy) by Tommaso Perfetti
Vincenzo has always led a marginal existence. He is now 42 and has not seen his daughter for a long time. One day, he takes the train to go and see her, not even knowing if he will be welcome. The time of the journey will be like his lifetime. Time without an apparent conclusion, where everything is mixed up in the chaos of his acts, the consequence of a lust for life and poor choices.
