The docufilm is based on a long interview with Fernanda Pivano (1917-2009), the writer who introduced Italy to four generations of American writers, from Lee Masters to Scott Fitzgerald, from Kerouac to Easton Ellis. Friends, singers and artists (from Bernardo Bertolucci to Luciano Benetton) read pages from a Pivano's book of portraits "I miei quadrifogli" (My Quatrefoils). Ottavio Rosati, directing small role- playings, tries to underline the contradiction between the Victorian education of Fernanda Pivano and her love for counterculture and transgressive literature.The making of the film caused conflicts and discussions, giving rise to a problematic post-production with different cuts of the movie.
