With winter and death approaching, Olga, an elderly Italian woman, writes a long letter to her granddaughter in America.

After a lifetime lived in a patriarchal society, Olga also contemplates the frailty of her family ties.

The resulting pages convey her inner journey and hard-won knowledge to the young woman with eloquent clarity.
