The two Italian sisters Ornella and Teresa have cared for each other through their whole lives. Teresa is now in her life’s twilight and having problems facing fate, whilst her memory is slowly fading out. Before it’s too late, Ornella decides to confront Teresa with a painful untold story that goes back to their childhood and might change their close bond forever.
The film is a warm portray of an Italian family, seen through the eyes of Ornella's son, Manu. With humour and tenderness it brings out what it means to build a life upon a secret.
