Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
This drama addresses with great care the awakening of homosexual desire in a 12-year-old boy. Duilio (Marco Mestriner) has taken a liking to Lorenzo (Lorenzo Lena), his new teacher at school, and he starts to ask him home for visits after class. Duilio's family is made up of his grandparents, his father, and a stepmother, and Lorenzo very much appreciates becoming a kind of surrogate cousin in the family. He is in the middle of a deteriorating, though short relationship with a woman and the human companionship is enjoyable. He ignores whatever sensual undertones there may be in Duilio's admiration of him, creating a situation that could be potentially disastrous.
