Arianna is nineteen years old and still has not had her first menstrual cycle. Despite the fact that her breasts have become slightly enlarged, which causes her some discomfort, the hormones her gynecologist prescribed for her do not seem to be helping with her maturation. One summer her parents decide to take her back to the lake house in Bolsena where they all used to go on vacation. Arianna has not been back there since she was three years old. While staying in the house, old memories start to come back to Arianna and like pieces of a puzzle, start to slowly fall into place. When her parents tell her it is time to return to the city for a few days, Arianna wants to stay behind to study for her exams. Her father accepts, but for some reason the idea makes her mother extremely uncomfortable; actually her mother has been acting strangely ever since they arrived at the lake house.

For more than just a few reasons, I did not enjoy this film. At all. Not at all. Unfortunately I have to agree with other reviews I have seen on here when I say that the film was not only weird and uncomfortable for me to watch, but I was honestly disgusted and confused as to why it had to show as much as it did. I understand the film makers were trying to be as honest and candid as possible, but for me, it was too much. I did not enjoy this film, skipped through all the weird disgusting parts, etc. It's not just because I felt second-hand embarrassment; like I said, I was just disgusted and confused. It took away from the plot this film COULD'VE had in my opinion. Overall I just did not enjoy this film, nor would I recommend, if I'm being completely honest.
