1h 34min   |   Italian   |  Edoardo Ponti

Madam Rosa is a former prostitute and Jewish Holocaust survivor who provides a home in her apartment for the children of other "working women" in the port city of Bari, Apulia, Italy.

After Momo, a 12-year old orphaned Senegalese immigrant robs her, Dr. Coen, the boy's foster father, who also happens to be Rosa's doctor, brings her stolen items back and makes the boy apologize.

Coen offers Rosa money to take in the boy and look after him for a couple of months, and she reluctantly agrees.
