Featuring Margherita and her work to reconcile motherhood and childhood, this film invites the viewer into a transitional period of this woman's life. Struggling to maintain herself during overlapping crises, Margherita battles an inability to relate to her teenage daughter as well as the failing health of her elderly mother. Thrust unwillingly into the role of family matriarch, Margherita pours herself into preparing herself and her brother for their mother's near passing while dealing with the recent end of a long-lasting relationship. This drama transports the viewer to a rough, but engaging time for a well know film director.
