An Haute Couture house receives the unusual commission by the British princess to design a wedding dress. During eight months, various people are working on different parts of this secret project without knowing of the final product: the pattern maker in Paris, the lacemaker in Normandy and the hand embroiderer in Mumbai. With her very first work shown in Vienna, French director Caroline Guiela Nguyen tells a story of structural and private violence at hand of the creation of a royal bridal gown. It is a utopian act: while all those involved are in reality obliged to silence, their fates and dreams are being narrated on stage. Guiela Nguyen skilfully presents a touching meditation about the tears (italian lacrimas) that are concealed behind overwhelming beauty.

Age Recommendation: 14+
