The Rome-set pic tells the story of Nic, aka Lovely Boy, a talented trapper who has a tattoo on his face and performs in tandem with his friend Borneo la XXG. As their popularity rises he gets sucked into a spiral of drugs and self-destruction and swiftly reaches breaking point. The only way he can come to terms with himself is to flee from all the commotion. He lands at a rehab facility in the Dolomites that caters to people like him, substance abusers. In rehab Nic struggles to find the person he once was but starts to find himself by sharing with others the enormous solitude he holds inside.
