    • Synopsis
    • Marco and Maria, two eighteen-year-old Italian kids taking a road trip in America, meet a gay
      couple, not much older than they are, who are trying to escape from a world that does not accept them. The journey that results will teach them all about the world and themselves and about who they want to be in their lives. None of them will remain unchanged. The other kids at her high school call Maria "the nun”, but
      during the course of the journey, to the great surprise of her travel companions, she will overcome her prejudices and realize that she must be herself if she wants to be happy. 18-year-old Marco appears to have everything, but the truth is that he is depressed, overwhelmed by uncertainty about what the future holds. His journey will help him regain faith in himself and find the courage to follow his dreams. Paul and Matt moved to San Francisco to escape family disapproval. Matt dreams of being a photographer, Matt’s passion is horseback riding, but both are stuck in jobs they hate and neglect what they really love. Their encounter with the two young Italians will help them remember what is important and get back on the paths they were meant to travel. This is a coming of age tale and a story of love found in unexpected places, but it is also the story of four young people who, despite coming from different worlds, will discover just how much they have in common. In helping each other realize their dreams, they discover the truth about their own.
