The story takes place in an obstetrics ward in Rome in early 1947. The war finished three years ago, but the dramatic marks it left are still painfully visible. The hunger and pain people suffered during the armed conflict are branded in nine women’s hearts and minds who are there to give birth. The protagonist, Nina, is the first one to be hospitalised because of some complications. The atmosphere in the room she shares with other women is of mutual support and solidarity. Nina will discover a completely unknown world: stories of difficulty and hardships, abandonment and betrayal, but also of love, passion, solidarity and sweetness. Thanks to the women she meets and their unique, yet universal stories, Nina will gain the necessary awareness and strength to face what is going to happen: the great and frightening experience of motherhood.
