After tragedy strikes, an irrepressible 35-year-old woman with Down syndrome embarks with her father on a cross-country adventure, bringing her new self-confidence and enabling them both to begin to heal.

Dafne (an irrepressible Carolina Raspanti) is a witty 35-year-old woman with Down syndrome. Though fiercely independent, she still lives with her aging parents. When a sudden tragedy strikes, she convinces her depressed father Luigi to accompany her on a cross-country adventure, sparking a series of events that bring Dafne a new and exhilarating self-confidence and enable her and Luigi to begin to heal. Director Federico Bondi challenges societal prejudices in this gentle combination of drama and comedy.
