“A sparky, moving rock’n’roll story of a fiery mother (singer) and son (songwriter) relationship is an impressive debut feature by Letizia Lamartire” – Adrian Wootton, curator of Cinema Made in Italy, CEO of Film London and the British Film Commission
Isabella continues to hold on to her dreams of fame while singing her past hit Tic Tac, the song that made her breakthrough in the early nineties, when she was only seventeen. Her young son Bruno is her guitarist. The two are inseparable, they perform every night together and share a ramshackle but happy life of unpaid bills and midnight strolls around the city. Bruno, however, dreams of a different musical career. Light touches of comedy and the music bring to life the slow but necessary separation between mother and son, a crucial and painful detachment. Just like the end of any other love story.
