We Are Who We Are is a coming-of-age drama television series co-created and directed by Luca Guadagnino for HBO and Sky Atlantic.
A coming-of-age story set on a US army base in Italy, the series follows two American 14-year-olds, Fraser Wilson and Caitlin “Harper” Poythress.
Fraser Wilson and his mothers, Colonel Sarah Wilson and Major Maggie Teixeira, arrive at Venice Airport in Italy from New York City, where they are greeted and picked up by their Nigerian neighbour, Jenny Poythress. They arrive at their new house, located on the US Army Base “Caserma Maurizio Pialati” near Chioggia, and the family begins to settle in. Fraser explores around the army base and the army base high school, and later haphazardly finds himself dragged along to the beach with a group of his new classmates, led by a girl named Britney. Fraser finds himself fascinated with a girl named Caitlin, who is Jenny’s daughter. Fraser spots Caitlin at a restaurant; unexpectedly, she is dressed like a boy and calls herself Harper. Later at the beach, Fraser asks what he should call her.
