La madre, il figlio e l’architetto is about a spherical church in Gibellina. Petra Noordkamp came across this church by chance and became intrigued by its remarkable design. Her fascination with this building intensified when she discovered that this church was designed by the Italian architect Ludovico Quaroni .He was the father of Emilio Quaroni, a young man with whom Noordkamp had a brief relationship in the 1990s. In 2001 Emilio killed his mother. This film traces Noordkamp’s investigation into what prompted Emilio to commit this act, but she particularly wants to reveal how the architectural perception of a building is tinted by an encounter 15 years earlier.
