The project

Cotidiana (Everyday life) is about the life of two persons with very busy agendas. Active lives but empty at the same time. 

They live the way others expect them to do. She according to her mother. He according to society. 

Do we have the lives we wish? Do we take the time to think about it? Is a Down Syndrome person’s life so different from one’s that is not?
