    • Synopsis
    • Leone is 6 years old and he's going to the lake with his parents, Emma and Pierfrancesco, to spend the Sunday together. Emma and Pierfrancesco are radical-chic with progressive ideas, wealthy and involved in the community life.
      Leone just got a good grade in a math test and he clearly knows what to ask for a gift: a pink dressed Barbie. The request freezes his parents: for them is a sign of a possible homosexuality of Leone, and the relaxing day at the lake will become the stage of their hypocrisy. Are they really the couple that they thought they were? Are they so open as they believe? The discussion will soon end with a choice: should they buy the Barbie or not?
