Most people pass through the seaside working-class town of Piombino on their way to islands offshore. But for teenage pals Francesca and Anna, and Francesca’s older brother Alessio, it is the place where they must stay—at least for now. The two girls have a flirtatious friendship and too much time on their hands, but circumstances are driving them apart while steel mill worker Alessio is faced with the return of an old flame now in a management position. With the downward-slanting economy as a backdrop and fraught sexual tensions in the forefront, Steel delves deeply and expertly into the vagaries of interpersonal, small-town relationships.
