SYNOPSIS

"Toto Forever" tells the impossible love story between a young postmen, that dreams with a new life, and a gangster, that is in deep trouble with a mafia group. Toto will never lose the "hope", despite of the traumatic end of the affair. Filmed in 16mm, Toto is a fable in which the feelings and emotions are always fully exposed, with a very poetic and symbolic narrative and esthetic close to the Japanese “Yaoi” (“Boys love”), a version of Animé.
