    • Synopsis
    • Rita has a constant itch from which creating conflict - something she does frequently - brings her only temporary relief, for the scars from being raised by a tyrannical father never healed. But from the ashes of the inferno of her childhood rose Rita - unpredictable, politically incorrect, confrontational. A suburban Marie Antoinette, a middle-class Hugh Hefner. Not the easiest way to be when you are a teacher, but the kids love her - maybe because she is still a child herself.
      But things are about to change. When her son brings home his in-laws, the father turns out to be Rita's boyfriend from her late teens, the man she wasn't ready to love back then. The kind man, the good man, the man who forced her to stop and examine where all that anger came from. Now he is back in her life, and Rita gets one last chance to confront that past that is still a controlling force in her life.
