Rome. Claudio is 15 years-old. Someone is writing “J’ador” on his forehead because he smells like a little girl. It’s Lauro, 18 years-old, leader of a group made of guys claiming to be fascists and doing a lot of things for a far-right party. Claudio wants to go with them to the “dinner”, but only those who belong to the group can join it, and not the little girls like him.
If he truly wants to achieve his goal, one afternoon Claudio must lose its boy scent and learn how to smell like a man.


Simone Bozzelli (1994) was born in Silvi, province of Teramo. He moved to Milan and graduated at NABA in Media Design and Multimedia Art.

Since 2018 he is studying Film Directing at the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia of Rome. His last short film, Amateur (2019), has been in competition at the 34. Venice International Critics week.
