But their quiet Sardinian life will be upset when the young girl discovers that local party girl Angelica is her birth mother. When Angelica is forced to move away because of financial troubles, she asks to become acquainted with Vittoria. Tina agrees, comforted by the idea that the woman will soon be leaving town. Searching for something deep and inexplicable, Vittoria and Angelica spend more and more time together against Tina's will… Daughter of Mine is directed by acclaimed Italian filmmaker Laura Bispuri, making her second feature film after directing Sworn Virgin previously, and a few short films.
