Jaquette L'Eté de Giacomo

It's summertime in the countryside of North-East Italy. Giacomo is a nineteen-year-old deaf boy. One day with Stefania, a friend from childhood, they go to the river to have a picnic. The two youths wander so far from the trodden paths that they finally get lost. They find themselves alone and free during an afternoon that could last the entire summer. Sensuality intermingles with their childhood games until Stefania and Giacomo become aware that the adventure they are living together is nothing but a memory, both sweet and bitter, of a time already lost.
