Left home alone one evening, a 12-year-old boy steals some live lobsters from his parents’ fridge and takes them as a gift to the single working class mother of his school friend, only to claim in their house a place that goes well beyond that of a dinner seat.

DIRECTOR'S NOTES:
Entirely set during a mundane school-day evening in Rome, Lobster Dinner is about the journey of misunderstandings, betrayals and awakenings of two boys from different social classes suddenly caught at odds in their respective quests for manhood.
