For fifty years Elsa has dreamed of enacting the scene in 'La Dolce Vita' at the Fontana di Trevi. She hasn't given up on the dream. For fifty years Fred has been a decent man who did what he was told, but lived with a woman he did not love. His grief is over loss and frustration. Fred's daughter finds him a nice apartment in an elevator building where he meets his neighbor, Elsa. She bursts into his life like a whirling dervish, determined to remind him how much there is to enjoy if you approach every day with joy. What Fred doesn't realize until later, is that Elsa has no choice but to live that way because she's on dialysis.
