Alice is a housewife in a posh part of Rome and a mother to nine year old Filippo enjoying a luxurious home and lifestyle. When her husband dies in a car accident she is left with a massive debt and the risk of losing her son. Desperately in need of cash, and with no skills, Alice turns to the oldest profession in the world. Realising she is totally out of her realm, Alice looks to another escort, Eva for guidance and soon she goes from awkward amateur to seductive professional. Meanwhile Alice and her son move to her former butler's neighbourhood, and a new world of working-class folk – including a love interest in Giulio.
In Italian with English subtitles.
