Synopsis

The teenager Fraser arrives with his mother Sarah, an US Army commander, at the US military base in Chioggia, a few months before Trump's election. Marginalized by other peers who live in that place suspended between Italy and America, Fraser makes friends with Caitlin, a shy girl who finds herself exploring her own gender identity in the transition between childhood and adulthood. Adolescent anguish and the obsessive search for the self pervade their summer surrounded by the vibrant nature of the lagoon, in a province suspended on the edge of the surreal.
