In one long shot, this adaptation of "La Mamma Fricchettona" (a monologue by Nobel Prize winner Dario Fo) shows Viviane De Muynck in a humorous elucidation of a woman's odyssey from doting motherhood to a state of independence whilst addressing an invisible and anonymous man. In an ambiance of a warehouse-filled with white sacks, the protagonist vociferously relates her non-existent relationship to husband and child, and her escape to the alternative underground of squatters and punks who are more of a family to her than her own brood.
