“Tomorrow, I won’t be alive anymore,” Francesco tersely tells his family, gathered for dinner. He has decided to commit suicide because he can’t bear living without his wife, who died three months earlier, and can’t imagine the idea of getting used to the pain. After the initial shock, his parents and his sisters try to make him change his mind. Michele Placido embellishes on the theatrical play written and performed by Filippo Gili, calling attention to a major taboo of our society.
