Rome, 1970s. Clara (Penélope Cruz) and Felice (Vincenzo Amato) have just moved into a lush new apartment. They no longer love each other, yet can’t seem to leave each other either. Their three children are the only thing that keeps them together. Although mentally fragile, Clara is a fun mom, the kind who turns setting the table into a song-and-dance routine with the kids. Felice, on the other hand, is prone to temper.
Their preteen daughter Adri (Luana Giuliani) now identifies as a boy and wants to be called Andrea (Italian for Andrew) – his dogged pursuit bringing the already unstable family to the breaking point. Meanwhile, Andrea falls for a girl (Penelope Nieto Conti) after sneaking out to visit a Roma camp.
