SYNOPSIS

Rome, 1976. Valerio is ten years old and has a lively imagination. His life as a child is turned upside down when, with his mother Gina, he witnesses an attack on his father Alfonso by a terrorist group. From that moment on, fear and a sense of vulnerability leave a dramatic mark on the feelings of the whole family. But it is precisely in those difficult days that Valerio gets to know Christian, a boy not much older than him. Solitary, rebellious and shameless, he seems to have appeared out of nowhere. That meeting, in a summer filled with discoveries, will change their lives forever.

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

His strong, magnetic and heroic figure stands as an archetype of a whole generation of men for whom emotions were perceived solely as weakness and had to be covered up by silence. In the December of 1976, when the attack was made on my father, I was just a year and half old, enough to sense the fear but not to understand that that pain and worry were going to stay inside me for a long time. I was never able to tell him this. Writing this letter to my father, tracing the outlines of a generation of “invisible” children shrouded in the cigarette smoke of grownups, has not been easy. Trying to do it by turning private words into universal ones has been a great challenge as a filmmaker and as a man.
“Next after God comes my Father” (Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart).
