1970s Rome: a time of great social and cultural change, full of grit and glamour. The young Borghetti family has just moved into one of the many freshly built apartment blocks in the city. The move is bittersweet. Despite the beautiful, sweeping views of Rome from their top floor apartment, the family is not as close as they once were. Clara (Penélope Cruz) and Felice are no longer in love but are unable to leave each other. Clara finds shelter in her special relationship with her three children. However, as their oldest daughter Adriana’s sense of identity and gender shifts, the family’s bond is pushed towards a breaking point in this subtle and uplifting family drama.
