  • The panel discussed how female directors and writers are now having a

more significant impact in the industry than in the past, but more progress still needs to be made. According to Noelle Carbone, creating strong female roles should not be defined as putting a male character in a dress. Instead, the building of the character should be written based on female strengths. The panel also discussed the belief that women supporting each other help everyone to succeed in the industry.

In this film, Valeria Tramonti (Micaela Ramazzotti), a 40-year-old assistant to a film producer, is the secret ghostwriter for the
charismatic screenwriter, Alessandro Pes (Alessandro Gassmann), who
suffers from writer’s block. Valeria is entranced by him and pines for his
love. She lives in the same building as her mother, Amalia Roberti (Laura
Morante), a literature specialist who also happens to be a ghostwriter for the
Minister of Culture, Arturo Onofri (Renato Scarpa). Alessandro is now under
pressure from the film producer, who has signed the famous director, Jerzy
Kunze (Jerzy Skolimowski), and needs to provide a brilliant script. He begs
Valeria to come up with the story. Besotted by him, she agrees.

  • Valeria then meets the very mysterious Alberto Rak (Renato Carpentieri),

a retired policeman who tells her the tale of the theft of the famous painting, “Nativity with Saints Lawrence and Francis” by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio from the Oratory of San Lorenzo in
Palermo on October 17, 1969. The painting has never been seen since but long believed to have been stolen by the Cosa Nostra. Valeria writes an intriguing script based on this mystery yet finds herself and others in danger while she works with Alberto to find the painting. In the process, Valeria becomes a confident woman who learns to find her own voice and ultimately receive the accolades she rightfully deserves. And Alessandro becomes repentant and also realizes that Valeria is the one he truly wants.
