Drama: An eighty-something former hooker ends up caring for a 12-year-old orphan who earlier robbed her.

Rosa (SOPHIA LOREN) is an eighty-something Holocaust survivor and former hooker of many decades who now cares for the kids of working hookers, such as young Babu (SIMONE SURICO) who belongs to her downstairs trans neighbor, Lola (ABRIL ZAMORA), and older Iosif (IOSIF DIEGO PIRVU) whose mother has apparently abandoned him.

Her newest charge is 12-year-old Momo (IBRAHIMA GUEYE) who came from Senegal to Italy when he was young and then ended up orphaned and under the guardian care of Rosa's physician, Dr. Coen (RENATO CARPENTIERI). He isn't comfortable in that role and asks if Rosa can care for Momo, something that doesn't sit well with her what with the boy having previously robbed her. Nevertheless and agreeing to do so for a short-term paid period, she reluctantly agrees and she and Momo initially clash.

Unaware that the boy is dealing drugs for Ruspa (MASSIMILIANO ROSSI), Rosa arranges a job for Momo working for merchant Mr. Hamil (BABAK KARIMI) who tries to instill some wisdom into the boy. With Momo warming to both Iosif and Rosa, who occasionally has bouts of PTSD from her time in Auschwitz, the boy ends up caring for the older woman as much as she does for him.

Probably not, but several of the main characters are kids, so it's always possible that could be a draw for some.
For thematic content, drug material involving minors, some sexual material and language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
