Synopsis

Ermanno is an Italian low-life. Lena is a Polish girl, seven months pregnant. They are two strangers. Lena has come to Italy to sell her baby. Ermanno has to pretend to be the father so that he can entrust the newborn to his uncle Fabio in an adoption between relatives. But Sole, Lena’s daughter, is born pre-term so she must breastfeed her before she can go away with her money. Lena tries to deny the bond with her baby but Ermanno starts to take care of them as if he was the real father.

Director’s Statement

Ever since I was young, I have been wondering what my life would be like if I became a father: what does becoming a father, becoming a parent, mean? Obviously, it has nothing to do simply with giving birth to a creature with one’s genetic traits, but rather with a change of attitude concerning one’s prospects, one’s expectations. How does it feel to lay one’s eyes on a newly born creature whom you have to take care of, whom you feel responsible for? I have wondered if I might ever become the father of a child who is not biologically my own, a route which is maybe less common, but no less concrete due to this. Sole is an attempt to answer such a question.
