As a little girl, Federica (Valeria Bruni Tedeschi) fantasized about having beautiful long hair that would grow back as soon as she cut it, about never-ending cones of cotton candy and about countless adventures that took her to the far side of the world. Now a charming thirty-something single woman, Federica's fantasies have evolved, adding lovers, stardom and motherhood to her waking dreams, where Federica continues to press for her everyday life to be as real as the fantasies that invade her.

Unfortunately, Federica's daydreams can only provide a meager distraction from the reality she faces. Her career as a successful playwright is heading south, her boyfriend is pressuring her to start a family, a former lover wishes to rekindle an old affair, her sister is barely talking to her, her brother is self-centered and her loving father is terminally ill. As is to make matters worse, Federica is rich, too rich and the guilt that consumes her because of it is pushing her over the edge.

This tragicomic romp is the directorial debut of one of France's most talented actresses, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi.
