Synopsis

Italian drama based on Elena Ferrante's novel. The film follows two young girls, Elena (Elisa Del Genio/Margherita Mazzucco) and Lila (Ludovica Nasti/Gaia Girace), as they come of age in an impoverished and violent district of 1950s Naples. In their dangerous and male-dominated neighbourhood, the girls begin an enduring friendship that continues into their teenage years, as they each strive to prolong their education. Years later, Elena, now in her 60s, receives a phone call informing her of Lila's disappearance and begins to reflect on their lifelong friendship.
