About the Film
Rome seems to be deserted. The heat is scorching. Only a mother and her daughter keep the road company, dragging a large suitcase along. It certainly looks like they are seeking one another, or escaping each other all the same. They reverse their natural roles in continuation, and it may seem confusing at first. Until, with just a single gesture, the unexpected epiphany of the nature of their relationship is revealed before them. The film was selected for the Orizzonti section of the 77th Venice Film Festival.
