Ettore returns to his hometown to sell his childhood home a year after a tragic car accident claimed the lives of his parents; but his visit is more emotional than he had anticipated. Emptying his parents’ house forces him to confront the argument that ruined his relationship with his father. His reunion with his first love and high-school friends makes him challenge his current values, and long for the simplicity of the past. But the encounter that affects him most is an unexpected meeting with Crazy Ester, the town recluse who spends all of her time sitting along the riverbank. During his challenging and emotional visit, Ettore unearths a family secret and finds his true love.
