The financial precariousness of middle-class life is thrown into dramatic relief in this powerful drama about life, love and family. Giulio (Valerio Mastandrea, who won the David Award for Best Actor for this performance) is a great dad who loves his kids but is not getting along as well with his wife. When they separate, he begins a slide into instability due to the demands of supporting two households. As his daughter (played by the wonderful Rosabell Laurenti Sellers, also a key player in Out of the Blue) begins to notice his declining state of affairs, the possibility of a new and carefully brokered peace among the family is negotiated.
