“An evocative, emotional experience, it pits humanity against inhumanity, resulting in something refreshingly new” – Empire Online

13-year-old Luna lives in a small village on the edge of a forest and is in love with her classmate Giuseppe. When he vanishes a cloak of secrecy descends over the village, seemingly because of his family’s ties to the mafia. Luna refuses to be complicit in this and begins a relentless quest to discover what has happened to him. Her search will take her deep into the forest where the mystery will deepen as she encounters hints of supernatural forces at work.

This dark fairy tale, inspired by a true story, received a ten-minute standing ovation at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival and has drawn comparisons to the work of Guillermo Del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, The Shape Of Water). Directors Grassadonia & Piazza clearly have a bright future ahead of them.
