Recently widowed American opera diva Caterina takes her teenaged son Joe with her on a long singing tour to Italy. Absorbed in her hectic work in various Verdi operas around Rome, Caterina is soon shocked to discover that her troubled and lonely son has become a heroin addict. Her desperate attempts to wean the youth off the drug result in an incestuous relationship, but also in a possibility to reunite Joe--maybe even herself--with his real father, whose existence she has kept a secret from him.
Catherine & her son share a desire that will shock you.

I love you, Joe. I love you, Joe.
No, you don't. You hate me. You never loved me. You always hated me. You're crazy. You're fucking crazy. You never loved me and you'll never love me. You hate me, you hate me, you hate me. You're a fucking bitch. A bitch!
