Classic piece, but traditionally told from the perspective of a male. We gave more room for Julia to be more proactive in the story.

With Mila we wanted to search for the surface where old and new meet so we ended up mixing classical music with some pop sounds and vice versa. On top of this, I added a layer of comets of the eternal love in aim for wrapping the audience into the classic story of the young lovers.
