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. But his sister Valeria persuades him to come home.
