During the summer of 1983 in northern Italy, 17-year-old Italian-America Elio Perlman spends the season playing classical music, reading, and flirting with his friend Marzia in his family’s 17th century villa. When Oliver, a charming American scholar working toward his doctorate, arrives to fill the role of summer intern for Elio’s father, the young boy and the unfamiliar man discover the awakening of desire that changes both of their lives.
