    Each of the sections focuses on a different character.

    The first part focuses on Elio’s father Sam Perlman and his relationship with Miranda whom Sami met while on a train to Rome to visit Elio. The second part focuses on events 15 years after ‘Call Me By Your Name’. It shows Elio working as a piano teacher in Paris and his romantic relationship with an older man, Michel. The third part revolves around Oliver’s future. Despite 20 years passing and having a wife and children Oliver still thought about his relationship with Elio. Elio’s Father Sami has died by this time. However, he had a child with Miranda whom he met on the train in the first part, and named him Oliver. Lastly, the final part showcased Elio and Oliver together again after over two decades of raising Sami’s child and Elio’s half-brother Little Ollie.
