Freely inspired by the novel of the same name by Enrico Galiano.
Gioia (Gaja Masciale) is 16 years old: full adolescence, a terrible period for everyone. But she is also affected by all the changes that her mother, Sabrina (Giorgia Wurth), young and beautiful, forces her to face. Starting with another move to a new city, Gorizia, and living with a rather extravagant grandmother, Claudia (Paola Sambo), with whom she hasn’t had a relationship for years. And, if that wasn’t enough, Gioia also has to deal with entering a new school that, for someone like her, solitary, without friends and without social networks, is not exactly simple.
Luckily, her passion for photography helps her, by photographing the world “from behind”, to seek a point of view that makes it appear better.
At school, Gioia meets Sara (Margherita Morchio); with the beautiful and “bitch” Ludovica, who immediately targets her; with the “cool” high school student Andrea (Enea Barozzi), a cheeky DJ with great social resonance. And among the professors there is Bove (Matteo Branciamore), the only one who can understand her: reckless, rebellious, messed up.
But, despite Andrea’s interest, Gioia only has eyes for Lo (Costantino Seghi), a mysterious boy who waits for her at night in places where no one can see them. He lives on the street, together with an elderly homeless man; he did something terrible in the past and he might do it again. Gioia doesn’t know that the truth will overwhelm her like a raging river.
