"La Luna" is the timeless fable of a young boy who is coming of age in the most peculiar of circumstances. Tonight is the very first time his Papa and Grandpa are taking him to work. In an old wooden boat they row far out to sea, and with no land in sight, they stop and wait. A big surprise awaits the little boy as he discovers his family's most unusual line of work. Should he follow the example of his Papa, or his Grandpa? Will he be able to find his own way in the midst of their conflicting opinions and timeworn traditions?

Director's Quote:
"Growing up in a seaside town in Genoa with my grandfather and my father in the house, I had to deal with two men who never quite got along. As a young boy, I was very often stuck in the middle of two personalities that clashed somewhat. With La Luna, I really wanted to try and tell the story of a little kid stuck between two bold individuals, a boy who has to learn to find his own way."
