“Jonas Carpignano’s impressive conclusion to his loose trilogy is a gritty, tough and affecting portrait of a young Calabrian woman uncovering the truth of her father ‘s life” – Adrian Wootton OBE, Curator of Cinema Made in Italy

After the acclaimed A Ciambra, Jonas Carpignano comes back with another powerful film that also premiered at Cannes Director’s Fortnight. The Guerrasio family and friends gather to celebrate Claudio and Carmela’s oldest daughter’s18th birthday. There is a healthy rivalry between the birthday girl and her 15-year-old sister Chiara as they compete on the dance floor. It is a happy occasion, and the close-knit family are in top form. However, everything changes the next day when the father disappears.

Chiara starts to investigate. As she gets closer to the truth, she is forced to decide what kind of future she wants for herself.
