A fragile story about marriage and family relationships. What is a family and what keeps it together? Aldo and Vanda’s marriage went through a difficult test in the beginning. It has persisted, but it is full of troubles and still open wounds, which both spouses and their two children are gradually talking about. But each of them seems to be telling the tale from a different perspective. Everyone has their truth, their guilt and their revenge. Everyone is looking for a way to live with these commitments and to find a balance between responsibilities and personal desires.
