When Antonia's husband Massimo is killed in a car accident, she accidentally discovers that he has been having a same-sex affair with a produce wholesaler named Michele. Although she's initially devastated by the news and hostile toward Michele, she soon develops a friendship with him and his and Massimo's circle of gay, transgender, and straight friends, among whom are a Turkish immigrant, a playwright and a boutique owner. As she gets to know these people and become a part of their lives, the new relationships dramatically transform Antonia.
The director Ferzan Özpetek, who is himself gay, has a cameo appearance in the scene where two characters are searching gay companies to find a friend of theirs, who is sitting next to them, and viewing some photos on the Internet, where Özpetek is clearly seen.
