The Lying Life of Adults synopsis
So what is the plot going to be about? TUDUM shared the following logline:
The search for a new face, after the happy one of childhood, oscillates between two consanguineous Naples which, however, fear and hate each other: the Naples above, which has given itself a fine mask, and the one below, which pretends to be excessive, trivial. Giovanna oscillates between high and low, now tumbling, now climbing, bewildered by the fact that, up or down, the city seems without answer and without escape.
The Lying Life of Adults cast
Set in 1990s Naples, the show stars Giordana Marengo as Giovanna and Valeria Golino as her aunt Vittoria, TUDUM shares.
Here is the full cast list:
