Lorenzo, Blu and Antonio have a lot in common: they’re sixteen, they’re in the same class and they have a family that loves them. And they are, for various reason, not accepted by their fellow classmates. The three become friends and try to find their own way. A film that isn’t just about puberty and the search for happiness, but also about bullying and homophobia. Un bacio is not your ordinary movie about dithering adolescents, but instead takes an honest look at relevant themes like bullying and homophobia.
