Cate is eleven years old, many brothers and a “pezzemmerda” father. She lives on the outskirts of Cagliari, but she would like to escape: she dreams of being a singer, she doesn’t want to end up like her sister Mandarina, who got pregnant at thirteen. Only Gigi, a neighbor, is worthy of her love. One day his life is in danger because Tonio, one of Cate’s brothers, wants to kill him. Meanwhile, Cate spends the longest day of her life with Luna, her best friend, between the neighborhood, the sea and the streets of the center. When night falls, everything seems lost, but a beautiful woman appears out of nowhere: the Coga Aleni, a witch who can read people’s future.
