Description

Anna and Lucia, two young women in their twenties, one from Italy and one from Nigeria, work as caregivers of Mrs. Maria, a bedridden elderly woman. Anna assists Maria during the day, while Lucia is responsible for the night-time: the shift change is the only moment the two girls meet. Despite this brief moment, the differences between them erupt daily. Their conflict is about asserting themselves, damaging one another, negotiating their place in the world.
