Set in Rome in 1984, a young girl, Aria (Giulia Salerno) is the victim of her parents' divorce in this dramatic but darkly humorous film from director Asia Argento. Her parents Charlotte Gainsbourg and Gabriel Garko relentlessly quarrel and are selfishly too involved with their own lives to pay attention to the little girl.

Aria, who feelings isolated, finds comfort in her best friend, Angelica and a black stray cat named Dac. Cast includes Olimpia Carlisi, Anna Lou Castoldi and Alice Pea.
