One day, after taking a photo of a girl on the bus, Enea is pushed to the ground by her boyfriend. Enea’s therapist convinces his mom that the time has come for the man to cope with his sexual desires. Enea’s friends Carlo and Alex get involved and try to find a way for Enea to have sex in a safe and legal environment.

From Bolzano to Linz, Zurich and Hamburg, Enea and his two best friends, Carlo and Alex embark upon a journey that will take them far beyond what they initially imagined. More people will join the mission and a series of unexpected events will divert the van from the initial destination towards new paths.

Carlo Zoratti, the writer/ director of The Special Need took home the SXGlobal Audience Award at South by Southwest Film Festival in 2015.
