Nearly Miss

It's the end of the 1980s, and between the Camorra, nuclear accidents, earthquakes, and slightly sadistic nuns life could seem quite a challenge.
On top of that, there's the pressure of complying to traditional gender expectations that don't reflect at all who Cristina really is.
Adults wants her to be sweet and gentle and dress cute, even though the pretty dresses itch and long hair is not really her thing.
Luckily for her, the one and only Diego Armando Maradona often comes to rescue as her imaginary friend. Not to mention that her intense correspondence with Barbie's magazine also allows for a nice chance to decompress.
A hilariously accurate portrait of the cruelty and challenges of childhood and a piercing depiction of universal family dynamic against the irresistible funky backdrop of Southern Italy in the 80s.
