SYNOPSIS
Simona (Anna Foglietta) is a single mother in her forties, and lives for her son Filippo (Nicolò Costa). She feels terribly inadequate to the role and the organization of the party for his eighth birthday brings to light all her insecurities. Divided between her son’s desires and the will to protect him from the judgment of others, which can be fierce, Simona arrives on the day of the party full of expectations and anxieties. While both parents and children arrive at the party, we start composing a very diverse array of people with very different views, and while the children play in the living room, the adults in the kitchen pleasantly hate each other. Until an unexpected performance by Filippo breaks the mold and triggers a domino effect of actions and reactions that bring the party to derail…
