Maria (Natalie Cristani) is a prostitute who has a very obsessive relationship with her younger teenage sister, Caterina (Giada Colagrande). Maria behaves as Caterina's mother, sister and lover and she only lets her out of the apartment to go to dance classes. Caterina loves Maria. She happily accepts her state of "imprisonment" until the day she falls in love with Giovanni (Claudio Botosso), the caretaker of the dance school. When Maria discovers their affair she develops a homicidal fury.
Directed, co-written and starring Giada Colagrande in her first feature film.
