ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Non sempre le famiglie che agli occhi degli altri sembrano normali lo sono davvero. Licia ha diciassette anni e una profonda rabbia che sfoga concedendosi agli uomini sbagliati. Il suo è un segreto che tiene gelosamente chiuso dentro di sé, sorvegliando che almeno a Giada, la sorellina, non capiti nulla. La loro madre, Amanda, è "strana": ogni tanto sparisce di casa e quando rientra, sempre stanchissima, porta con sé giocattoli rotti che sostiene di dover "curare". E una donna enorme, alta e grossa, ma anche una creatura fragile, incapace di usare la forza persino per difendersi dall'uomo che ha sposato: Luca, il padre delle due ragazze. Questi è un essere minuto, un ometto addirittura ridicolo che passa il tempo libero al bar ma che a casa sa perfettamente come incutere paura, inveendo contro la sorte che gli ha dato in moglie una donna "così tonta". La stessa che, anziché reagire alla violenza, lo accudisce e protegge come un bambino, sotto gli occhi stupefatti delle figlie. Poi, un giorno, qualcuno scioglie alcune pastiglie di un medicinale nel bicchiere di vino dell'uomo...

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
Families that seem normal to others are not always normal. Licia is seventeen years old and has a deep anger that she lets out by giving herself to the wrong men. Her secret that she keeps jealously closed within herself, making sure that at least Giada, her little sister, does not understand anything. Their mother, Amanda, is "strange": every now and then she disappears from the house and when she comes back, always very tired, she brings with her broken toys that she claims she has to "cure". She is an enormous woman, tall and big, but also a fragile creature, unable to use force even to defend herself from the man she married: Luca, the father of the two girls. This is a tiny being, an even ridiculous little man who spends his free time at the bar but who at home knows perfectly well how to inspire fear, inveighing against the fate that gave him a "so stupid" woman in marriage. The same one who, instead of reacting to violence, looks after and protects him like a child, under the astonished eyes of her daughters. Then, one day, someone dissolves a few tablets of a medicine in the man's wine glass...
