Teo is a creative in a trendy ad agency. Nice and charming, he enjoys life as an elusive womanizer. Emma is pretty, vibrant and blind since the age of 16. However, that has not stopped her from becoming an osteopath, surrounding herself with great friends and living life to the fullest. When they first meet, Teo is mesmerized by her sexy voice. Attracted as he has never been with a blind woman, he takes her on a date. Emma is too smart to give into the illusion but against all odds it’s Teo who is hooked. This off-beat romantic comedy by the acclaimed Silvio Soldini premiered at Venice Film Festival.
