Fire and Smoke
Stefano and his friend - and secret crush - Silvana find their school lives growing increasingly more tumultuous by the day. Every day finds new difficulties due to a group of bullies who mercilessly prey upon the weaker students - particularly Dino, Silvana's close gay friend. Our heroes realize that only unity and understanding can bring about change, but they may not have time to make a difference before tragedy strikes. A low-budget Italian indie from director Stefano Simon, Fire and Smoke takes a close, unflinching look at bullying and its consequences.
