Margherita, a filmmaker, returns home to Rome where her brother spends his days taking care of their ill mother. A perfectionist who’s reluctant to delegate, Margherita tries to come to terms with the situation, although with increasing guilt. But when she finds herself struggling with domestic troubles and an American actor, who’s a pathological liar and is unable to learn his lines in Italian, Margherita, increasingly disturbed by her mother’s slow decline, finds herself overwhelmed. On the verge of a nervous breakdown, she finally learns to let go.
