BECAUSE OF MY BODY

BECAUSE OF MY BODY

Disabled people like Claudia, a twenty-year-old woman with a serious motor disability, have long been denied the pleasures of sex.

Marco, a Love Giver, comes into her life. He has just attended his first course in helping disabled people discover their bodies and their sexuality. It’s an experimental programme, because a law on the matter is yet to be developed in Italy.
Supported by a team of specialists, Claudia and Marco embark on a series of meetings that become ever more intimate. However, the project is subject to protocol which includes a rule that is difficult to enforce: never fall in love.
