Iuvenilio and Iuvenilia are cousins. Their family, native of Kentucky, moves overseas owing to the turbulent political situation, ending up on Saint Martin’s hills. Over there, on the promise of making a fortune from distilling whiskey, the two cousins experience their first instincts and passion. But this simple story will prove to be intimately connected to a major one. And there, in Saint Martin, in a game of subtle eroticism and tension, Iuvenilio and Iuvenilia will take part in one of the most significant events in the history of the Risorgimento.
