Short film loosely based on the real life events of Becco di Rame (Copper Beak), the true story of Ottorino, a courageous goose, who lost his beak fighting against a fox to protect his friends. Rescued by the veterinarian Alberto Briganti, Ottorino now has a beautiful new beak made of copper and a new name: Becco di Rame.

Taking inspiration from Flemish art, the film and the editorial tell the true story through six tableux. A young boy meets the goose and feels on his own body the pain of amputation and the relief and beauty of having a prosthesis, represented by golden teeth. 

The short film was realized under the nickname of Melany.
