Maria Linde is a Jewish Nobel Prize winner. Her life follows the quiet rhythms of the Italian countryside, until her world and relationships with her husband and daughter begin to erode as she grows fond of a young immigrant, Nazeer. At the crossroads of a free spirit and an aging body, Maria tries to define her role in the fast-changing conditions of her world. When a dramatic terrorist attack takes place in Rome, Maria shares a controversial opinion about the events in an impassioned acceptance speech, giving up her Nobel Prize and igniting controversy in her village and across Europe. From that moment on, she will experience a startling chain of consequences, for Nazeer, for her family, for the local community and for herself. “Dolce Fine Giornata” is a story about a clash of great creative intellect and femininity, with the backdrop of eroding democracy in Europe. From the first to the last scene, Maria has the strength and courage to stand for what she values most.
