The owners of an Italian textile factory sell the majority of their shares to a corporation. Apparently, no workers will be laid off. Workers and employees can feel safe. But there is a small clause in the agreement the new ownership wants the Factory Council to sign. Eleven women will decide for themselves and as representatives of their colleagues if to accept the proposal or not. Little by little, the debate becomes heated and their stories, hopes and memories come out. A kaleidoscope of pulsating lives, so different from each other - lives of women, mothers, daughters.
