An unconventional family saga that focuses not so much on the couple’s strong love, but on the lack of it. Rome and Naples. Two cities and two stages of Aldo and Vanda’s married life, the 1980s and modern times. A marriage after 12 years is on the verge of breaking up, Aldo is having a hot affair with a younger colleague at work. After another thirty years, we see them still together, albeit alone, connected by unseen bonds despite the burnout of their feelings. Wrong choices, hurtful comments lead to the conundrum that for Aldo and Vanda to continue to be together, they would have to be silent more often.

The film was obtained with the support of the Italian Cultural Institute.
