Lorenzo, Blu and Antonio have a lot in common: their age – sixteen, being in the same class in the same secondary school in a small town in northeast Italy, each of them having a family that loves them even though they are distracted by the business of everyday life; and all three, albeit for different reasons, have ended up being isolated from and by their peers.

“One Kiss” is a film about adolescence, the first times and the pursuit of happiness. But it is also about bullying and homophobia. About models and patterns that prevent us, and young people, in particular, from being happy and finding the path that will lead to their own individual, particular, personal happiness.
