Now in its sixth year at MOPA, the San Diego Italian Film Festival has grown into an amazing conduit to enjoy Italian culture. From October 26th through November 11th, the festival features 17 spectacular movies that evoke laughter, tears, and passion.
During a coach tour, Rosalba (Licia Maglietta), A forty-year-old housewife, is 'forgotten' and left behind in a motorway service area. Rosabla overcomes her initial irritation and seizes the unexpected opportunity to escape from her everyday routine and embarks on a short adventure of her own, to Venice. As soon as she arrives, Rosalba phones her husband but his unreasonable response and other chance occurrences induce her to stay in Venice longer than planned.
