Olimpia is a legend of dance halls. At age 70, she puts her orchestra’s Ducato back on the road and sets off on a journey towards the people who loved her and the places that made her a star. For some time, however, she has been forgetting things. Therefore, she hires Maria, a girl who has yet to emerge from her cocoon, as her driver and chaperone. Olimpia is excessive and passionate, while Maria is quiet and shy. The two women will learn to love each other, until Maria realizes that Olympia is asking her to be much more than a chauffeur. For she has told no one that the journey will be her last.
