Synopsis by Mark Deming
How did you lose your virginity? Six teenagers killing time on a subway ride answer that question in this episodic drama. In a series of otherwise unconnected episodes, each of the young people relates a story of being introduced to love and sex, ranging from a shop clerk who finally gives in to the lecherous advances of her boss, to a boy who is seduced by his older brother's girlfriend. Director and co-screenwriter Massimo Martella also examines issues regarding drugs, family tensions, romantic disappointment, and class division along the way, much as he did in his earlier film about teens growing up, The Dive.
