Allegra is seventeen and sometimes feels transparent. His parents, worried by the fear of aging, neglect it. The companions of the new school exclude it: too smart for Belle, too beautiful for Bad. And then there's Gabriel, the perfect guy, who treats her like a little sister and seems more interested in an "old" university twenties. Luisa has thirty five years, sometimes it feels cumbersome. Works in a bank, is single, has two best friends (a perfect wife, spinster for calling the other), is tormented by a thirty-year mortgage and a relationship with a married man totally wrong. Allegra and Luisa are not known, but an accident changes the lives of both and, more importantly, makes the meeting. It is an opportunity for Luisa to prove as a mom / sister and Allegra to feel part of a family again. And, for once, things seem to work. Allegra is able to conquer his Gabriel, Luisa a little 'self-esteem. But the illusion of happiness does not last long. In a downhill race made of absurd jealousies and bad choices, Allegra away from him, one after the other, all the people who love her. Luckily, her friends are always true, though. And after a dark period Allegra and Louise find themselves. Changed, wounds and finally be able to understand what they really want from life.
A diciassette anni, Allegra si sente invisibile: i genitori la trascurano, le compagne della nuova scuola non socializzano e Gabriele la tratta come una sorellina. Lei, Gabriele se lo sogna di notte. Invece Luisa, che ha trentacinque anni, si sente soffocare. È single, è tormentata da un mutuo trentennale e divide il suo affetto tra le due uniche amiche e l'amante. Part-time, perché ovviamente è sposato. Allegra e Luisa non si conoscono, finché un incidente le fa incontrare. E se all'inizio si trovano costrette a una tempestosa convivenza, finiranno per scegliersi come migliori amiche. Con la sua scrittura cinematografica, coinvolgente e diretta, Maria Daniela Raineri racconta il rapporto fra due donne di generazioni diverse, tanto vere da strappare una lacrima, così autoironiche da strappare più di un sorriso.
