Claudia and Flavio were passionately in love for a long time. Then it all ended and things were not easy for her. After many years, their world is adrift. He feels the need to keep on going, down on the ground; she would rather never forget. A sentimental comedy that with irony and great lucidity tells of a love story not quite fit to survive in the world, and of the way women face up to an ending and a new beginning.

Rancesca Comencini
Italian director, screenwriter and author Francesca Comencini, the gifted daughter of the great Luigi Comencini, debuted in 1984 with her first film, Pianoforte, awarded with the Premio De Sica at the Venice Film Festival. She subsequently collaborated with her father Luigi in drafting the screenplay for A Boy from Calabria (1987). She afterwards moulded her films along the most possible documentary-like style, also directing actual documentaries, such as Elsa Morante (1995), Carlo Giuliani, Boy (2002) and In fabbrica (2007). Since 2014, she has been filming the TV-Series Gomorrah together with Sollima and Cupellini.
