17 year old Elio visits his family’s summer villa in Northern Italy to spend a vacation with his father, a Greco-Roman professor, his mother and Oliver- an American doctoral student who is working as his father’s research assistant.

Amid the sun drenched splendour of the setting a timid friendship between Elio and Oliver develops as they discover the heady beauty of awakening desire that will alter their lives forever.
