A House in Flames
Tolstoj was right when he wrote that «All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way». Sometimes that unhappiness must be examined in order to move forward.
The apparent stability of an ordinary family begins to crumble as they await the results of a diagnosis. In a state of fear and doubt, Manuela can’t help but question her choices and those of her loved ones, a web of interconnected relations: rocky marriage, a problematic son, an unborn child. Her unobservant Jewish family, Italian, with its own festering wounds and unresolved issues serve as the backdrop for this intense domestic story.
