Beautiful things should be done first, and then thought about.
This is the story of Benedetta, a popular sixteen-year-old girl, as she meets a bizarre foster family that’s just moved to her small town. The noisy and eccentric family is composed by a father and a mother, their son, an asylum seeker, a former prostitute with her young daughter, a juvenile criminal, two men with severe disabilities. Benedetta, the mayor’s daughter, will find her social role put to a test only to find out that she does not like it and that it makes her unhappy.
As the town is passionately preparing for the mayoral elections, Benedetta falls in love with the juvenile and discovers a world on the margins where everyone seems “wrong” or “bad”, but who are instead only human in the end. Between moments of humor and drama, dancing, laughter, tears, paper boats, local cuisine and evictions, everything culminates in a single difficult night where everything unravels and seems lost. However, despite individual choices, nothing will ever be the same again.
