Donoma, a feature film made on a 150 € budget, is a mosaic film that tells three stories of love: a female teacher begins an ambiguous relationship with a student, an agnostic teenager is called by God, a photographer offers herself to a stranger. Do we choose to love? Do we choose to be loved? Expertly assembled, Donoma’s vignettes overlap and intertwine, constructing a landscape that questions what love is, addressing its many manifestations including family, infatuation and heartbreak. And from these stories, additional subplots are formed in which other relationships are introduced, adding extra depth to the multi-layered narrative.
