Everybody needs somebody, sometimes...
Lorenzo Cuni is a fourteen-year-old loner. His wealthy parents think he is away on a school skiing trip, but, in fact, he has stowed away in a forgotten cellar. He plans to live in perfect isolation for a week, keeping the adult world at bay.
Then a visit from his estranged half-sister, Olivia, changes everything.
