Amalia is a great actress. The limit between her person and the characters she interprets is always blurry, but she has a special relation with her granddaughter Emma. Nevertheless, when Amalia dies, Emma realizes that she has never known who her grandmother really was: reading her diary she gets to know the Amalia at the time of the war, a different person from the one who designed and sewed dresses for her, a sweeter and yet always resolute Amalia who met the love of her life and kept a disconcerting secret.
