Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Set at the end of the 1930s, this tale about three college students and their brush with a degenerate lifestyle is low on action and budget, but the dialogue and interactions of the protagonists keep interest piqued. One evening while college buddies Rino, Pieretto, and Oreste (Alessandro Fontana, Roberto Accornero, and Matteo Corvino) are traveling around the Turin hills on their usual excursions into philosophizing and just hanging out, they come across Poli (Urbano Barberini) an obviously wealthy young man, passed out behind the wheel of his top-of-the-line sports car. It turns out that Poli was once a friend of Oreste's, and from that moment onward, the three strike up an acquaintance with him. One thing leads to another, and when they spend a summer on his estate, they soon become uncomfortably acquainted with his dissolute lifestyle as well.
