Young Julia is happy and fulfilled, both personally and professionally: her career as a photographer is going from strength to strength, she is close to her sister, her successful artist parents – father is a filmmaker, mother a writer – and her loving husband who is a contemporary music composer. Love and mutual esteem bind this family together: spending long summer evenings under the stars, talking about each others’ work and future projects, in a warm and festive atmosphere. However, this idyllic period comes to an end when Julia’s mother learns she has cancer. This disease, the outcome of which remains in doubt for a long time, has a profoundly disturbing effect on them all, and Julia, whose career begins to suffer, sees those around her, those who used to protect her, collapse one after another.
