In this star-studded festival highlight, an unexpected storm strands a family gathered to celebrate the 50th wedding anniversary of their grandparents on the small island of Ischia in Italy. The entire family is forced to live under the same roof for two days and two nights, leading to them rehash unresolved conflicts. 

The lives of the siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews become unpreventably intertwined, lingering between a past that revives their unforgotten disputes, a present that reignites discord and a future that appears to be uncertain for everyone. The island morphs into a labyrinth of passion. Each person must reckon with their own personal, sentimental, family, or professional circumstances. When the storm passes and they can return home, nothing will ever be the same again.

From the writer of 2016 Lavazza Italian Film Festival highlight Perfect Strangers, and the Sundance Film Festival award-winning director of The Last Kiss comes this classic study on the Italian family, a local box-office hit featuring an enviable assemblage of Italy’s finest talent including Pierfrancesco Favino (The Confessions LIFF16), Stefano Accorsi (Italian Race LIFF16) and screen icon Stefania Sandrelli (The Conformist, 1970, The Last Kiss, 2001).
