It hasn’t rained in Rome for three years and the lack of water changes rules and habits. In the city that is dying of thirst and prohibitions, a chorus of characters moves, young and old, marginalized and successful, victims and profiteers. Their lives are linked in a single design, while each seeks their own redemption. The film is directed by Paolo Virzì and includes in the cast great names of Italian cinema such as Monica Bellucci, Claudia Pandolfi, Valerio Mastandrea And Silvio Orlando.
