SYNOPSIS

A fantasy film, where the dream of a peaceful world could become reality. The summer of 1980 is a summer of blood, marked by the tragedy of Ustica on 27 June and the attack in the Bologna station on 2 August: tragic episodes that are the background to the story of Martino (Luigi Ciardo) and his relationship with Captain Clark (Treat Williams), an American soldier, and Silvia (Matilde Maggio) his brother’s girlfriend. Parallel but closely related relationships that run and grow on the edge of the surf. Martino will abandon his shell and know how to conquer the waves and love, the captain will succeed in defeating the ghosts of his past and Silvia at the end of the holidays will be able to go back home. Theater of Action is a beautiful beach, whose access is forbidden because under the control of NATO. The story of this friendship is intertwined with the tale of “Dragut”, a prince who has challenged the sea for love: he will have to go beyond the rainbow, in the depths of the sea, and find a magic jar. If he succeeds, the world will no longer know the pain of violent deaths.
