A film by STEFANO MORDINI
On this side the still mill works non-stop, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
On that side is the Elba Island, a dreamed-of paradise of happy families.
In between, nor here nor there, are Anna and Francesca on the bank of their secret beach. Grown up little girls, they are living their last summer of innocence before high school. Being beautiful while growing up in the working-class outskirts is hard and the only way to get by is to stick to their friendship that is as exclusive and powerful as love can be. Love is what keeps Alessio, Anna's brother, going. Factory worker to the core, he firmly believes in the labour values. Sure, it pays poorly but it gets you to bed stinking of clean sweat. Alessio could have every girl in town but his thoughts are set on the only one he has lost, his dream, Elena. One day love strikes, powerful and unexpected for all and life starts speeding, until it cracks, bleeds and brakes. Far behind the youth's world live the parents. Resigned and cruel models the kids swear never to resemble to. On each one of them inevitably lies the constant cycle of steel that no matter what, can never stop.
