16-year-old Chiara lives in a small town in Calabria. Her father, Claudio, disappears without trace. She decides to investigate But the closer she gets to the truth behind this mysterious disappearance, the more her own future is shaped.
“With this intense feature, crowned with the Europa Cinema label at the Directors' Fortnight, Italian director Jonas Carpignano plunges us brilliantly into the tunnel of disillusion through a teenager's quest for truth.” Joséphine Leroy, Trois Couleurs) “The new encounter with Jonas Carpignano has confirmed the hopes placed in this young Italian director. A Chiara, (…), finds very convincing accents as it supports the trajectory of a teenager faced with the discovery of the important role her father played in the mafia and the institutions claiming to sort out her future.” (J-M Frodon, Slate)
