Video filmed and edited by Sam Chetcuti – Cyberspace
Jonathan ... a normal man. He is so normal that he perfectly blends into a crowd, seemingly unnoticeable. He lives an exemplary live, a normal life, nothing special. But Jonathan has a secret: he can’t swim. And precisely when the entire world has gone into a lockdown, a series of episodes have happened in Jonathan’s life that have drawn him to only one thing, becoming an obsession. He wants to swim. Whatever happens in this normal and anonymous life, Jonathan wants to feel alive for at least a minute. Even if it means drowning while trying. Whatever happens, nothing is going to stop him.
This performance will be in Maltese.
