The director catches members of her family frozen in time, as voluntary prisoners of their internal monologues.

Fatima Bianchi films her parents and siblings, gathered in the family house in Lombardy, while Francesco, the eldest, serves a prison sentence. The director catches each of the protagonists frozen in time, voluntary prisoners of their internal monologues, and creates a documentary behind closed doors, which succeeds in achieving a very novel-like density at this critical moment.
