Directed by Salvatore Mereu, Ballo A Tre Passi (Three-Step Dance) takes place over the four seasons, emphasizing issues of tradition versus modern times and the resulting isolation and lack of proper communication. In the first season -- spring -- a group of young boys travels to the ocean for the first time, while summer follows Michele (Michele Carboni), a shepherd whose only non-work-related activity is frequenting a seaside restaurant, where he meets a French woman Caroline Ducey, who is intrigued by Michele's naïveté. Autumn centers around Francesca (Yael Abecassis), a nun who is leaving the security of convent life in order to attend her sisters wedding, while winter finds the elderly Giorgio (Giampaolo Loddo) at the same wedding, struck by the differences between town and country life.
