One winter’s day, Nena gathers her family together to celebrate her birthday. Everyone is there: her husband Umberto, her son Vito and her daughter Caterina with her cousin Isabella, her daughter-in-law Adelina and her ex-son-in-law Manfredi with his new girlfriend Joana, her granddaughter Alma, her maid Lucia with daughter Grazia. And then there is Paco, Alma’s peacock. While everyone waits for a lunch that will never be served, Paco becomes infatuated with a little dove in a painting. The tragedy inherent in the impossibility of this love distresses the whole family. All of the guests are impelled to think about their true feelings, about what remains and what is gone forever.
