Margherita is a director working on a film about the working world, starring an eccentric and quick-tempered American actor. Margherita also has a sick mother, who is being cared for by her and her brother Giovanni, who is always one step ahead of her. Between the shooting of a film that is turning out to be more complicated then expected, a 13 year old daughter who is having problems with Latin, and the pain of mourning an impending loss that she does not know how to handle. Margherita confuses realty, dream, and memory and tries to find her road in all that suffering. Margherita è una regista.
