In a small Apulian village in the mid-70s lives Carlo, a 16-year-old young man eager to grow up: he has older friends, who are histeachers of life. He is the youngest member of a band full of ambitions and loves a schoolmate from whom he desperately awaits ayes. Carlo’s goals are clear and defined, but everything changes with the arrival of Tea, Gaia and Lena, three daughters of anengineer from the north who was sent to town to complete the installations of a factory. The girls seem to belong to another worldand their way of being will soon throw the rest of the group into disarray.

“The 1970s in jeans in Rubini’s fifth film are a tender flash-back on the Apulian province, on the gentle rhythms of a youth ready fora transformation that will not occur, on first loves. The rock band, the eternal stops at bars, the harmless gestures of revolt, theamateur dramatics staging an impractical text, the evenings at the home of three emancipated and exotic girls from the north, Tea,Gaia and Lena, daughters of an engineer from Monza who arrived to take care of one of the many cathedrals in the desert of thesouth.” (Enrico Magrelli,Film TV, 28 March 2000)“Sergio Rubini is one of the few Italian authors who makes films not just to make a film, but to say something, to express his ownvisions, emotions and feelings.” (Lietta Tornabuoni,La Stampa, 24 March 2000)
