The world of Nina, sixteen-year-old, is positively upset by the meeting with Carlotta, a girl of her age who has just moved next door. Both girls secretly hatch the idea of running away from home: Carlotta can’t take any more the suffocating love of her mother Matilde, Nina is tired of her mother, Amber, an exuberant art collector too caught up in her wild life, made of trendy parties and bizarre art exhibitions.
