'I was born twice - three times, actually. A boy the first time, and a few years later I was born again as a girl. The third time, I was born." We see Arianna, with her sky-blue eyes, emerge from the water - just like in the Greek myth of Hermaphroditus - in the opening scene of the film by Carlo Lavagna. Arianna is a story of a girl who, over one summer, spends time in her old childhood home by the shores of the lake, and discovers her true identity, her family's past and a secret that had been kept from her in order to protect her, forever denying her the chance to make her own decision.'
