Summary
An accidental meeting brings a worn out and weary housewife and a former radio announcer together for almost two hours of comic and touching confidences, arguments, and self-searching. The day is May 8, 1938, the day of a huge rally celebrating Hitler's visit to Rome which underscored the infamous alliance between the Nazis and Mussolini's fascist regime
