The Forest of Chance Encounters, or She Gave Me Pizza With Murder In Her Heart.
Four boys go into a wood, but not all of them come out again.
Based on four seemingly unconnected stories from Italo Calvino’s collection of Italian Folktales : one boy chases a hare into a forest and stumbles upon a mysterious palace, another takes cash instead of a bride, a third loses his wife whilst chasing his wedding ring. And the fourth story? Well, that’s a chance for the women to answer back.
