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.
It is the last day before Craig and other soldiers are to be deployed, and Fraser, Caitlin, and her friends play a paintball game in the woods. Sam and Danny ambush Fraser and shoot him with dozens of paintballs, but Britney finds the pair and stops them. Meanwhile, Craig spots Caitlin but lets her go with the flag. On the way back, Valentina is visibly upset that Craig will be away for two years, so he asks her to marry him that day, and he accepts. After the group helps pick out clothing, the couple is wed in a small ceremony. The group celebrates by breaking into a villa whose affluent Russian owners are away. The group swims in the villa’s pool and parties inside, helping themselves to the Russians’ stock of food and alcohol. The group drinks heavily, notably Danny, who describes himself as an abstainer from alcohol but drunkenly has sex with one of Valentina’s friends on the couch. Caitlin asks Craig why he didn’t shoot her during the paintball game, but he denies having had an open shot. Eventually, Craig and Valentina consummate their marriage in one of the villa’s bedrooms while an inebriated Sam confronts Fraser in the bathroom. Fraser shrugs it off, but he’s cornered and kissed by Sole outside the bathroom. He tells Caitlin, and she seems unfazed but tells him not to do it again. The next morning, Craig sneaks out back to the base to be deployed.
