Having to support four children and a husband who struggles to find a job, Eli crosses Rome to go to the bar where she works as a bartender, underpaid and under the table. Vale, on the other hand, is a performer and dancer who works in disco clubs. Connected to a deep sense of sisterhood, both women find strength in each other to face everyday difficulties and challenges. An act of resistance to survive the harshness of the Eternal City.
