GIFFONI EXPERIENCE 2012 - 14.24 July

Sections & Films


Category: Edition 2012

Charlie has just started secondary school. Michael, his best friend, has committed suicide leaving Charlie to face  school on his own. Shy and clumsy, but natural-born kind and for this reason an ideal confident for everyone, Charlie is taken under protection by a gang of outsiders and lives his first experiences as a teenager: the first party, the first fight, the first love.


Charlie ha appena iniziato il liceo. Michael, il suo migliore amico, si è suicidato, lasciandolo solo ad affrontare la scuola superiore. Timido e goffo, ma dotato di un'innata gentilezza che lo rende il confidente ideale per tutti, Charlie viene preso sotto l'ala protettiva di un gruppo di studenti dell’ultimo anno, e vive le sue prime esperienze adolescenziali: la prima festa, la prima rissa, il primo amore.
