In 1983 in the north of Italy, Elio Perlman, a musically gifted 17- year-old American-Italian, spends his summer break at the sprawling cliffside mansion owned by his father, an eminent academic and his mother Annella, a translator. Elio idles away his days reading, transcribing sheet music and flirting with his friend Marzia but his idyllic summer break takes a tumultuous turn when 24- year-old American doctoral student Oliver arrives at the Perlman home to work for Elio’s father as a research assistant.
