Description

Free-spirited Maria Linde (Krystyna Janda) is a Nobel Prize winning author with a charming villa in Tuscany, and an adoring family. Maria's status in life and society has allowed her to flit through town as she pleases, relatively oblivious to the daily struggles of others. She has been carrying on an affair with a much younger Egyptian immigrant, Nazeer (Lorenzo de Moor), and has slowly been falling more and more in love with him. As the affair begins to leak into Maria's private life, a terror attack in Rome heightens tensions dramatically. Shortly after, at a local ceremony honoring her life's work, Maria shares a controversial view on art and recent events, and gives up her Nobel Prize. A cascade of criticism follows and Maria finds herself in conflict with her family and community who are baffled by her changing political outlook.

Press

"Borcuch's film asks the right questions about the dangerously escalating xenophobia and leaves a lasting impression with its final metaphoric shot." - RogerEbert.com
