As a luxury hotel critic, Irene (Margherita Buy) checks into the world’s finest establishments incognito to assess their standards while meticulously judging every detail from the concierge’s manners to the temperature of the food and the quality of the bedsheets. On the rare occasions she’s not working, Irene’s world revolves around her absent-minded sister Silvia (Fabrizia Sacchi), two lively young nieces, and best friend—and former lover—Andrea (Stefano Accorsi). But when Silvia begins to deal with marital problems and Andrea faces an unexpected life change, Irene’s small support network is fractured and she struggles to balance a glamorous career with the growing desire for something more.
