Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Matteo (Vittorio Mezzogiorno) and Serana (Mara Venier) are living together in Rome in the early 1970s, and each has their own colossal challenges to face. Matteo is a hard-drinking, melancholy leftist who wants more than anything to be a film director, and Serana is a kindergarten teacher who has been so traumatized from being raped at the age of seven that her sex life is a shambles. The film follows Matteo and Serana as they cross each hurdle to normalcy, revealing the effects their individual changes make on their relationship and on their life's objectives.
