With lightness and irony, Ozpetek tells the gritty story of the intimate dynamics of a family, but also of the strength and weakness of the human being. From the start of a family’s journey into the world, we reassess ourselves, and family is a place where we can always come back. Sooner or later everyone will go back to that ¨place¨, even if life takes us elsewhere.
Tribeca Film Festival : Special Jury Prize
Tommaso studies in Rome and is back in Lecce with news that he wants to share with the family. Before the dinner he confides in his brother: he is not in business school as his parents think, he doesn´t want to run the factory, wants to be a writer and he is gay. But before Tommaso can make his statement at the dinner, Antonio, who has been working at the factory for years, drops his own bombshell....
A wonderful story of human relations and acceptance of the difference, set in the picturesque Salento area.
