A message circulates from mobile phone to mobile phone. A bunch of strangers meet in a mansion. They come searching for sex, but never has an orgy been so full of love. (Or feelings?)

There are few driving forces more powerful for humans than desire. Desire determines our behavior, modifies it, brutalizes it, drives it crazy. In recent years, it has been precisely sexual desire that I have found more challenging when trying to detonate a story. Is sex just sex? What could be behind a desire that appears to be only sexual? Is there not always an emotional element in the pursuit of sexual contact? From these questions comes the birth of “Like Foam”, a comedy of emotions in which sex seems like the main desire that drives the characters but we’ll soon realize that they are looking for something that actually has little or nothing to do with the use of their genitals.
