The story of a family composed by seven sisters, Gina, Cetty, Maria, Katia, Lia, Pinuccia and Antonella, and performed as a kind of morbid procession, in which past family events are recalled, using memories, dreams, cries, laughs, sacrifices and revelations that prevents them to move forwards. Life and death are inextricably mingled.
