The opening scenes of Simone Godano’s AN ALMOST ORDINARY SUMMER present two dramatically different Italian families arriving, to their shared surprise, at the same property for their summer holidays. Disagreements about what constitutes a good time – loud music and banana boats or sipping wine and peaceful contemplation – immediately become a source of tension, though these arguments are just the beginning.

The plot quickly thickens as Tony and Carlo, the family patriarchs, reveal that they’ve fallen in love. The shared property was part of a scheme to come out to their loved ones all along, and what’s more – they’re getting married! But the story doesn’t end once the secret is out. Both Tony’s daughter Penelope and Carlo’s son Sandro join forces to try to sabotage the impending marriage between their fathers. Will Penelope and Sandro succeed in splitting their fathers apart, or will the marriage go on without their blessing?
