The Hedghog

A Transgender sun-heated water tank technician and the girl he once was and a paper figurine meet on the roof. They are all outsiders, possess of a scattered identity of body and mind, homeless. An endless horizon of sun-heated water tanks spreads in front of them, suggesting a hope for love.

The Hedgehog is a puppet theater project that unfolds a whole life. A paper figure trying to escape her childhood home, drawn to fantastic landscapes inside her soul, scary, magical, a reflection of her dreams and fears. She arrives in the abandoned poor side of town with a small suitcase. The paper figure and Soli the Sun-heated water tank technician wander around. They share an inevitable tragic faith. They struggle to have a different ending, where gender and social classes cease to exist, where they could make peace with their outsiderness, where anomalous can receive love
