Furthermore they all end up being isolated by their peers even though for different reasons. Nonetheless their friendship helps them resist until attraction and the fear of being judged by others catches them unawares.Un Bacio/One Kiss is a film about adolescence, first times, the pursuit of happiness. but also about bullying and homophobia.
