Directed by Valerio Ferrara
Italy 2021

In an upper-class neighborhood of Rome, Paolo is having a drink with his friends, as per usual. When he decides to go home, he is approached by two dodgy-looking guys. Gioacchino, one of the two, is immediately very aggressive towards Paolo. He has been looking for him for the last three months, and now he has finally found him. An impossible love triangle between an upper-class boy, a girl from the suburbs and her boyfriend, a love story that began in the summer days and ended on a warm winter night.
