Synopsis

“A noble rarity, passionately involved in the exploration of oppositional ideas of motherhood.” –Variety

The intricacies of motherhood are explored in this sundappled Italian melodrama. For 10 years, Tina and her husband Umberto have raised young Vittoria as their own daughter. Despite a happy home life, the child is drawn to the vivacious but deeply troubled Angelica, not realizing their shared connection. As the truth comes to the fore, the relationships among the women in small-town Sardinia are forever shaken.
