ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Il caso Amy Stevenson fece scalpore nel 1995. La ragazza, all'epoca quindicenne, scomparve nel tragitto da scuola a casa e fu ritrovata, giorni dopo, mezza morta. La foto del suo viso angelico venne affissa a ogni angolo di strada, trasmessa per giorni e giorni da tutti i notiziari, ma nessun testimone si fece avanti e l'aggressore non fu mai identificato. Quindici anni dopo, Amy è ancora viva, in un letto d'ospedale, circondata da poster di celebrità degli anni '90 e dimenticata ormai dal resto del mondo. Finché nella sua stanza non entra la giornalista Alex Dale, impegnata in un'inchiesta sulle condizioni dei pazienti in stato vegetativo. Alex e Amy sono cresciute nella stessa periferia, hanno ascoltato la stessa musica, flirtato con gli stessi ragazzi... Alex non può fare a meno di sentirsi coinvolta e, nella speranza di poter finalmente emergere dall'inferno personale in cui è piombata da qualche tempo, inizia a indagare su quel caso mai risolto. Ma scavare nel passato potrebbe rivelarsi più pericoloso del previsto, soprattutto quando non è più possibile tornare indietro...

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
Amy Stevenson was the biggest news story of 1995. Only fifteen years old, Amy disappeared walking home from school one day and was found in a coma three days later. Her attacker was never identified and her angelic face was plastered across every paper and nightly news segment. Fifteen years later, Amy lies in the hospital, surrounded by 90’s Britpop posters, forgotten by the world until reporter Alex Dale stumbles across her while researching a routine story on vegetative patients. Remembering Amy’s story like it was yesterday, she feels compelled to solve the long-cold case. The only problem is, Alex is just as lost as Amy—her alcoholism has cost her everything including her marriage and her professional reputation. In the hopes that finding Amy’s attacker will be her own salvation as well, Alex embarks on a dangerous investigation, suspecting someone close to Amy. Told in the present by an increasingly fragile Alex and in dream-like flashbacks by Amy as she floats in a fog of memories, dreams, and music from 1995, Try Not to Breathe unfolds layer by layer to a breathtaking conclusion.
