Two women appear in the villa that is home to a father and son: a grandmother and her granddaughter. The young Wendy is a single mother. Her child’s father did not have the chance to learn about the baby before his passing. The grandmother, an intellectual, also became a widow. She is unable to live on her own. They are looking for a new home, on which they both depend. Their coexistence is far from idyllic. Quite on the contrary, it entails ample relationship and opinion conflicts. At the same time, however, it gives rise to ever-greater and deeper mutual understanding. As it often happens, they only realise the ultimate meaning and values of their generational encounter when it is too late. The fact that love seems to be running on a different track does not mean it is not there, and that there is no fundamental reflection of life – something that is experienced well beyond the two female characters. The production offers fine opportunities for mature actresses and personalities. They differ in their date of birth only from the outside. Their understanding of themselves and their era is a witness that deserves sharing with pour audiences.
