The story of three young friends clinging to each other as they try to find themselves. Alberto and Stefano’s lives change completely when they meet Chiara, a young, sensual woman who becomes their friend and lover. They become inseparably intertwined as they move between Milan, Rome, and London in search of identity, only to discover that they are “far from everything”. After a few short years, their once seemingly bright future turns out to be more bleak than they had imagined: Alberto becomes addicted to drugs, Stefano wanders aimlessly, and Chiara’s modeling ambitions fizzle. The power of their friendship is the only thing that shelters them from disaster.
