It is the peak of summertime in the camping site of Maremma, Tuscany. It is the last ditch effort for Vincenzo and Adriana, a young blue collar couple on the brink of divorce, to save their marriage which is threatened by life’s challenges. Nic, their 12 year old son, is like his father – unable to control his violence. Even if he is able to impose himself in a small group of children, he can’t possibly express his feelings for Marie, a teenager torn apart by her father abandoning her.
