Roberto Rossellini was Italian Neorealism’s most renowned film director and the father of a cosmopolitan, nonconformist and slightly crazy family that includes Hollywood stars, a daughter who converted to Islam and even someone who chose to live on a desert island.
It also includes Alessandro, once a photographer with an erratic career and a recovering drug addict. As the grandson of a genius, he feels that he has not lived up to expectations and is convinced that his relatives all feel the weight of the same burden: not rising to the levels that the famous Rossellini surname requires. At the age of 56, he decides to take on the challenge, as well as to improve his precarious finances, by making this film, forcing everyone to undergo family therapy under the scrutiny of an unforgiving lens.
