Project description

In a world that constantly drives us to excellence and in pursuit of success, a girl in her thirties suddenly fails: an emotional and logistical disaster. There’s no choice; she is forced to go back to the fold and to crush the great expectations of her family (father and grandmother) from a small city in central Italy. But it will be the unexpected closeness and dedication of her father that will give this young woman a new perspective, and the strength to get up again. Even at the risk of her life.
