Giorgio and Laura, a couple like many who love each other intensely and the light of the sun of the south of Italy where they live. He is a chef and owns his own successful restaurant and she teaches the chorus at the Conservatory, but there is a shadow behind them to darken their way, they want children but are struggling to have them. Laura becomes pregnant after being raped in an alley, a crime she will not report or even wants to talk about, the child could also be her husband’s who at one point gets closer, but the traumatic event puts into serious crisis their relationship. For her the unborn child will never be the fruit of violence but a divine gift crowning her immense love for her husband: Giorgio for its part will have to fight to choose to love a son who could not be his, a son who could be the result of the worst wrong that destiny has reserved for the person he loves. Only a great love could maybe overcome the painful trial they are facing. A test that requires the hardest choice. Will their love really be strong enough to withstand such a situation?
