Rome, the 1970s, times of important social and cultural changes, full of glitter and splendour. The young Borghetti family has just moved into one of the newly built blocks of flats. Moving is bittersweet. Although the view of Rome from the top floor is stunning, family members are not as close as they used to be. Clara and Felice are no longer in love, but they cannot part. For Clara, her unique relationship with her three children becomes an escape from loneliness. The eldest daughter, Adriana (11), takes advantage of the fact that nobody in the neighborhood knows her and starts pretending in front of other children that she is a boy. This brings the family to a critical point.
