Additional Info

A young Italian American visits her father's grave every Father's Day to fill Papa in on what's been happening with the family. This year she is interrupted by Pasquale on his daily visit to his father's grave. His papa died four years ago and for the past two he has been talking back to Pasquale, showing particular interest in soap operas plots. Marianna is annoyed that her papa doesn't talk to her, but she accepts that these things take time. She also takes a close look at the timid baker and sees that she has finally found a man with whom she has something in common.
