Synopsis: 1970’s Rome: a time of great social and cultural change. The Borghetti family has just moved into one of the many freshly-built apartment blocks in the city. Despite the beautiful sweeping views of Rome from their top floor apartment, the family is not as close as they once were. Clara and Felice are no longer in love, but are unable to leave each other. Clara finds refuge from her loneliness in the shelter of her special relationship with her three children. The oldest, Adriana, an unknown child in this new neighbourhood, deliberately presents as a boy to the neighbourhood children, pushing the family’s bond towards a breaking point.
