Fortunata tells the story of a young mother (Jasmine Trinca) with a failed marriage behind her, who fights everyday for her dream: to open a hairdressers by challenging fate, in an attempt to emancipate herself and acquire her independence and the right to happiness. "Fortunata (‘lucky’ in English) is a singular female qualitative adjective in Italian”, explains the director. “But it is also the name of a woman. And above all, a destiny. And that’s not to say that that destiny is deserved. There are men in this story who don’t agree with Fortunata’s happiness. We’ll see how that works out…"

The film is being produced by Indigo Film and HT Film in partnership with Universal Pictures International, which will be releasing it in Italy.
