On a winter’s day, Nena brings her family together to celebrate her birthday. Everyone is there: her husband Umberto; her son Vito and his wife Adelina; her daughter Caterina and her ex-boyfriend Manfredi with his new girlfriend Joana; her cousin Isabella; her housekeeper Lucia and Lucia’s daughter Grazia; and Alma, her grand-daughter and Vito and Adelina’s child. And then there is Paco, Alma’s peacock. While waiting for a lunch that will never arrive, Paco falls in love with a little dove in a painting. An impossible love that shakes the whole family: everybody is pushed to reflect on their true feelings, on what remains and what is gone forever.
