  • Elsa, a refined and cultured art history graduate and Michele, co-founder of a maritime company, is a lovingly married couple, with a twenty-year-old daughter named Alice, sharing a prosperous life together. However, appearances aside, heavy clouds will begin to form when out of the blue, Michele confesses to Elsa that he was laid off from the company two months ago and that the couple needs to liquidate all their assets because they are, in fact, indebted to the bank. To make matters worse, Elsa is forced to adapt to this new reality, as debts and problems keep adding up. As a result, shocked and distraught, Elsa will do everything in her power to save what's left of them, while Michele, feeling betrayed and defeated, will gradually fall into limbo and self-pity.
