Production: Altera


In a mild spring evening, in the backdrop of a city in the North of Italy, four Moroccan friends live a

strange adventure that seems to change their lives. One of them proposes the others a collective

purchase of an ivory branded suit; according to him is able to give success and self-confidence

to the people wearing it.

The other three, disappointed and upset by their personal life conditions (a subject drug pusher,

an unsatisfied lover, and an alcoholic) accept to go along with the weird notion of their friend,

who eagerly collects the money and leads them to an Italian street trader that sells them the suit.

During the evening the four friends wear the ivory suit in turn,

and run into unforeseeable consequences.
