Based on true events in Sicily, 1965. Spirited daydreamer Lia finds her life derailed when her flirtation with a handsome local, Lorenzo, takes a horrific turn. Lia and her family take her case to the courts, battling intimidation from Lorenzo’s powerful family, along with the immense social and legal pressures demanding Lia to marry her assailant. Marta Savina’s assured debut has a contemporary feel as she tackles this revolutionary true story with immense skill and sensitivity. The Girl from Tomorrow is an urgent tale of self-determination and family love.
