Synopsis Lee died of an overdose. Emily, his partner, was incriminated and sentenced to six months in jail. After being released, she goes back to her life, to her dreams: becoming a singer, getting back her son’s affection. The boy lives with his grandparents, Lee’s parents, Emily faces the rejection of her mother-in-law, who always has and always will blame her for her son’s death; her father-in-law, on the contrary, understands the boy has to be with his mother. Through Paris, London and San Francisco, Emily looks for her place in a world reluctant to forget the woman she has been and unwilling to accept her as the woman she longs to be.
