The ordinary life of a young woman growing up in Bologna, consisting of work, sports and evenings with friends, takes an unexpected and dramatic turn when her mother, Berta, is arrested. We follow not only the protagonist's family affairs, but also her complex social network. Romina's story could be repeated identically in any Western metropolis because it reflects a universal reality: the precariousness of suburban life today. Through Berta's imprisonment, the injustice of the prison system - a controversial aspect of our society - materializes. Romina offers a realistic portrait of urban life, made up of social fragility, precarity and prison.
