At the age of nineteen, Arianna still hasn't had her first period. The hormones that her gynaecologist has prescribed don't seem to have any effect on her development. In the heat of the silent summer afternoons she spends in the family's hunting lodge in Tuscany, she starts inquiring about her body and her past, to finally face with the true nature of her sexuality and her true identity.

A sensitive story of a 19-year-old girl getting more deeply acquainted with her own body. "Carlo Lavagna's stylish, tender debut feature is a worthwhile addition to the growing pile of alternative gender studies on film." (Variety) (S.D.W.)
