Maria Linde, a renowned poet and Nobel Prize winner, lives in her glorious Tuscan villa surrounded by family and friends. After a terrorist attack in Rome, she refuses to let fear of outsiders and the unknown take over. In her acceptance speech for a local award, she denounces Europe’s crumbling democracy, but is unaware of the backlash she will have to endure as a result. The film artfully reminds audiences of the importance of art, politics, and family in all our lives through an empowering tale of womanhood and love. Introduction by Ilya Tovbis (VAFF)
