DIR Giorgio Bosisio CAST Paolo Roberto Di Seglio, Lorenza Pisano
Pietro lets us follow him along a simple adventure of adolescence… a time where little things, hidden to the eyes of the ones who can't observe, can reveal the ironic and subtle beauty of life. The memory of his dead father is silent unnoticed by Pietor's mother as Peitor can only hope his mother would share with him indicators of the past. A glance in the mirror and the finding of an old coat that his father used to wear marks just the beginning of his realization that something new and 'turbulent' is coming into his life.

One morning, Stéphane asks Simon if he can borrow his bedroom to have sex with Sophie, a girl with whom Simon is secretly in love.
