Three couples of friends are forced to stay each in their own home, due to the unexpected lockdown in Los Angeles. Jonathan has an art gallery and lives with his wife Sue, but he has a mistress, Clarissa, whom he cannot see. Instead, she lives alone, next to her Iranian tenant Darius and with few people she hears on the phone, including her ex-professor and dear friend Paul who is married to Rita, a much younger woman and very different from him. Forced isolation will lead everyone to re-evaluate their relationships with the people they live with, with those with whom they would like to be and in the end with themselves.

Worlds Apart was made in a somewhat unusual way and also, if we can say it, quite innovative. We didn’t give up when they forced us all to stay at home, and during the beginning of the lockdown in Los Angeles, even before we realized what was happening, we decided to continue to exercise our creativity and thought of making a real film. Geographical distances and emotional distances. This is the background of our history. Couples intertwining, forbidden loves, re-evaluated relationships, hidden lovers, unexpected romantic stories.”
