A glance to an ordinary family undergoing some financial difficulties. Personal relationships are strained as a result of the poor financial conditions. Each family member strives for solutions. Granny Irma is tired and stressed by overwork; Grandpa Ivo, despite being forced on a wheelchair, is full of energy and looks after the kids and house encumbrances; Giovanna, a mother and daughter at the same time, is worried by the financial uncertainties of her work and is concerned by the huge responsibilities of having two kids to support, with an uncaring divorced husband; Cristina, Giovanna’s 12 year old daughter, is in the middle of an adolescence crisis and seeks refuge to her problems by listening to the music all day long; the only break is when she quarrels with her junior brother Michele which is 7 years old. Michele is fair and sensitive, and feels responsible for the family problems. He finds a “solution” that endangers his health and puts him at risk of his life.
