Maria, Pinuccia, Lia, Katia, Antonella. The childhood, adulthood and old age of five sisters born and raised in an apartment on the top floor of a small block in the suburbs of Palermo, where they live alone, without their parents. When the sisters are between nine and eighteen years old, the youngest, Antonella, dies at sea. Thirty years later, Antonella still lives among them, she is still a child, and survives in the memory of her sisters. A home that bears the marks of the time that passes, as do those who have grown up in it and still live there. The story of five women, of a family, of who goes, who remains and who resists.
