A woman recounts the lifelong friendship and conflicts with a girl she met at primary school in Naples during the early 1950s.
In Season 2, Lila and Elena reunite with an old acquaintance--an encounter that propels them into two completely different worlds.
Season 3 picks up with Elena and Lila, both now grown women, during the great open sea of the 1970s. Lila took her young son and left her husband and a comfortable life to work as a factory worker in the toughest of conditions, while Elena left the neighborhood to study in Pisa, and is now an author of a successful novel that has paved the way to an affluent and cultivated world. They now navigate a scenario of hopes and uncertainties, still united by their strong and ambivalent bond.
