GIFFONI EXPERIENCE 2012 - 14.24 July

Sections & Films


Category: Edition 2012

11-year-old Ida has abducted her classmate Hannes because she wants him to kiss her. Unconventional and unaccepted, she’s searching for love and affection – and a kiss, of course, would be a good place to start.


11 anni, Ida ha rapito il suo compagno di classe Hannes perché vuole che lui la baci. Non convenzionale e poco accettata in classe, Ida è alla ricerca di amore e di affetto - e un bacio, ovviamente, sarebbe un buon punto di partenza.
