Against a heavy cloak of secrecy, a 12-year-old girl smitten with her handsome classmate ventures deeper and deeper into the enchanted Sicilian forests to find him, unaware of just how thick is the mystery behind his strange disappearance.
In a little Sicilian village at the edge of a forest, Giuseppe, a boy of 13, vanishes. Luna, his classmate who loves him, refuses to accept his mysterious disappearance. She rebels against the silence and complicity that surround her, and to find him she descends into the dark world which has swallowed him up and which has a lake as its mysterious entrance. Only their indestructible love will be able to bring her back along.
The story was inspired by the real life abduction and murder of the son of a Mafia informant in 1993. See more »
When going back to the forest Luna retrieves Giuseppe's backpack and finds a figurine of Son Goku with blue hair. Then Luna and Loredana dye their hair blue like the toy.
Son Goku appears in Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball Kai, Dragon Ball GT, Dragon Ball Super.
The movie takes place in the 90's and Son Goku did not achieve the blue hair transformation yet. Blue hair is a new transformation that appeared with Dragon Ball Super which has been released only in 2015. They should have referred to Dragon Ball Z and a yellow hair transformation (the only one known in the 90's for Sayans like Son Goku). See more »

A real life horror turned into dreamlike fantasy
In a small Sicialian town, Luna (Julia Jedlikowska), a teenage schoolgirl is infatuated with one of her classmates, Giuseppe (Gaetano Fernandez). After he disappears she experiences visions that suggest that he is in danger, but her concerns are met with silence from the local community. Only a handful of friends join her in the search. She attempts to use her visions to trace him.
The film is based off the real life kidnapping of Giuseppe Di Matteo in 1993 who was kidnapped by the Mafia to silence his father. He was held for over 700 days before he was murdered. The film drifts between fantasy and reality, often disarming the viewer. A genuinely haunting film, especially at the film's conclusion it has a dreamlike aesthetic to it.
