Lemons

In the wake of their Sicilian grandmother’s passing, cousins Lou, Miles, and Hunter embark on a nostalgic journey to recreate her cherished lemonade recipe. However, as they grapple with their personal ambitions and uncertain futures, their bond is tested as they are forced to confront their individual paths in life.

'Lemons' is produced by students aged 16-20 as part of Project Paradiso, a cross-cultural UK-Italy educational filmmaking initiative from Young Film Academy (YFA). Full details of Project Paradiso can be found at https://www.youngfilmacademy.co.uk/project-paradiso
