The short movie is set in Florence in the '70s and tells the story of Sonia from age 11 to adulthood. The spectator gets in touch with the feelings of an entire generation through Sonia's life. That historical and political period in Italy is marked by terrorism and the movie describes the generational conflict of people at that time. Following Utopian ideals, some Italian young people renounced their backgrounds and behaved violently. In the film, this behavior is evoked as Sonia's emotional journey. Due to her actions, she lived a long period of detention, during which time she constructively reviewed her past.
