festivals & awards:
Pietro is a simple, introvert boy, a novice at high school. Like his schoolmates he is beginning to face the changes of childhood into adolescence life with its eccentricities and its doubts. Pietro discovers his own body, finds a new interest and wish for the opposite sex, quests for his own personality and finally realizes the need to find himself outside the everyday family life.
He is living that particular moment of life when you look at yourself in the mirror: still a child but with a secret and overwhelming wish of growing up overnight. A brief period of 360° enchantment, curiosity, unbridled passion towards something still unknown: the outside world begins to make sense - yet uncompleted. All of a sudden you are able to take decisions and actions although they may be different from the intentions.
Milano in the cold winter. Its characters, sometimes grotesque, its melancholic Christmas joy and Pietro, like a ghost, a tireless observer who leads us in a journey of pictures and little epiphanies.
