At odds with her family, her job and her boyfriend, Lea, 28, can’t stand the fact that her mother has been sent to a mental hospital yet again. During a weekend outing she decides to run away with her.
On the road and far away from family pressure, mother and daughter will discover an intense feeling of freedom and attempt, for the first time, to understand one another and confront the reality of an illness.
