Isabella Flore is 91 years old and has an explosive temperament. She is a deeply religious catholic and a fortune teller. She is also the only inhabitant of a Sardinian village next to what was once the world’s largest river dam. Today, the dam is in danger of collapse and the village stands abandoned.
Isabella is often visited by people who look for her prophecies. But whoever arrives expecting a quiet old lady blinks their eyes in astonishment. She is despotic, loses patience easily and has a bawdy sense of humor.
But despite her strong character, she grows weaker. When the guests leave, she puts on her oxygen mask and breathes heavily. Isabella has one dream. Before she dies, she wants to renovate the abandoned village.
She crosses out successive lottery tickets and writes letters to the authorities asking them for action. There is not much time left. According to her own prediction, she will die in 2 years. She does everything to save the memory of the village and of herself.
