Synopsis
Summer, 1971. The youthful, stunning Anna Nigiotti is dubbed Miss Mamma of Livorno's most famous bath house. Unaware of rousing the unwelcome attention of the male population; the suspicions of her husband Mario; the hidden embarrassment of her son Bruno. Today. Ever the heartthrob - despite her terminal illness - Anna blows the doctors away with her irresistible, contagious verve. Bruno, instead, has burned all bridges with his hometown, his family, his past. A passionless teacher in a trade school, he leads an obstinately disengaged life. But his sister Valeria persuades him to come home to see his mother for the last time. So Bruno makes his reluctant return to Livorno, to visit that vibrant, beautiful ball of energy, who seems to defy all the medical odds. That meeting, after years of hostility, forces Bruno to come to terms with the tumultuous past he had tried to forget at all costs.
