  CHILDREN OF THE NIGHT

  Andrea De Sica



Synopsis
Giulio, a seventeen-year-old from a well-to-do family, is sent to an isolated boarding school in the middle of the Alps, where iron-clad rules limit all contact with the outside. As he struggles to ward off the intimidations of older boys, Giulio befriends Edoardo (Ludovico Succio). Together, they set out on frequent escapes at night, finding a sort of refuge in a nightclub hidden in the forest. Here they meet Elena (Yuliia Sobol), a young prostitute who intrigues them. Suddenly, they discover that the transgressions they have concealed are actually part of the school’s educational program, with their teachers constantly lurking from behind.

Synopsis
Fortunata (Jasmine Trinca) lives a frantic life, with an eight-year-old child and a failed marriage in her past. She is a home-based hair stylist, fighting daily to achieve her dream to open a salon, gain independence and be happy. She has planned every detail and she’s ready to face all obstacles, but she hasn’t considered one aspect: love. For the first time, she finds someone that values and loves her for the woman she is.
