Roberto Rossellini was a genius of the cinema and a distinctly unconventional father. His romances made headlines around the world, scandalous to the rigid morality of the Fifties and generated a numerous, proudly multi-ethnic, and decidedly extended family. Alessandro, the great directors first grandchild, has had a shaky career as a photographer and a lengthy past as a drug addict. As the first grandchild of a genius, he doesnt feel he measures up of the surname he bears. So, at 55 years of age he decides to make his first film, taking on the Rossellini saga with wit and pressing his relatives into an impossible family therapy in front of the camera.
