Elettra is 12 years old and she can’t understand why her beloved grandmother has suddenly disappeared from her life.
A Roman family is suddenly overwhelmed by an unexpected death. Elettra, the yougest, wanders among her broken family, weighed down with questions yet full of unsettling initiatives.
Each of the adults tries to ger her to accept her grandmother’s death by suggesting rational, spiritual, religious or pragmatic points of view… to no great avail.
A portrait of a Roman family today: 7 very different characters, trying to deal with an unruly adolescent.
Elettra in the end manages to piece together her own story about death. And it may be that she’s grown up.
