It 'does not matter

Esther and Rosanna stipulate a pact, for someone perhaps scandalous, unacceptable. A pact that changes their lives forever. In 1933, in one of the darkest moments for Europe, Esther had to leave Berlin, her in love with her, the freedom of her, every promise of the future. She now she is a young woman caught, with tormented intelligence, whose elegance is baffling the Piedmontese mother-in-law. Rosanna instead grew up in the midst of rice fields, she could not study and the beauty of her played a bad shot by turning her out in a determined and sensual creature, anxious to change her existence of her. What a common two women are in common, it will not take a lot to find out. I am living despite everything, deeply capable of loving and taught something about each other. One day Esther question to Rosanna to help her have a son, "as in the Bible she made Agar for Abraham and Sara". Their universe does not exclude men at all. Esther is linked to her husband Riccardo from a generous complicity and Rosanna loves Nicola with a passionless irresponency, which finds her soundtrack in the solo and improvisations. Meanwhile the world goes on and questions without saving them: from the war to the post-war Turin that starts to reconstruction, passing through Bartali and Togliatti, the years of student revolts and terrorism, up to the fall of the Berlin Wall. The days are filled with things to do, pannofix jackets, shared secrets, fears, enthusiasms, bets, Fiat 1100 who arrange on freshly built dangerous highways. And the life that runs, the life of two friends who will never be even more.
