Their rela­ti­ons­hip is in tur­moil and Tom­ma­so must come to terms with his wife’s desi­re to chan­ge the rules of their mar­ria­ge. This chan­ge bet­ween Tom­ma­so and his wife is set against his simp­le day to day life in Rome; as a stu­dent taking Ita­li­an clas­ses, as a tea­cher working with young acting stu­dents, his dealings with the local mar­kets and bars, and most import­ant­ly his rela­ti­ons­hip and the pure love he feels for his young daugh­ter and she for him.

His artis­tic tem­per howe­ver brings ano­t­her dyna­mic to the lm. The­re is the world and the world that exists in Tomasso’s ima­gi­na­ti­on, which espe­ci­al­ly con­cerns and impac­ts Nik­ki and the other women in his sphe­re of in uence. He is a bud­dhist with active visi­ons of the pas­si­on of the Christ as well as an ex-addict and alco­ho­lic in active reco­very, all in a city he calls home but is still for­eign with the lan­guage and his abi­li­ty to com­mu­ni­ca­te a strugg­le. The dra­ma builds from this idea of rea­li­ty and ima­gi­na­ti­on, and resol­ves in the dis­co­very of what he and Nik­ki real­ly want, need from and are capa­ble of giving each other and their fami­ly.
