Synopsis:
It’s summer in the countryside of northeastern Italy. Giacomo, nineteen, deaf since childhood and Stefania, his childhood friend, sixteen, go to the river for a picnic. Like in an enchanted fairy tale they get lost in the woods and find themselves in a heavenly place, alone and free, during an afternoon that seems to last a whole summer. A minimalist meditation on youth and friendship.
