LEND A HAND

Caterina is a young and well-known psycologist, her life is perfect:
Love, job, family, friends are all that she wishes.
But one day something happens which threatens her happy but a little bit unconscious existence.
Her father dies leaving her full of debts owing to her sister Viola who has got through the family property; a provincial scandal disgraces her reputation and she loses her job, her husband leaves her. For the first time Caterina must start all over again and begin a new life. A deeply different life from the one she has always defended and loved. After a rocambolesque cheerful series of events she will discover that her deepest strength is this one: never to stop, always being in motion, lifting her head up once more, trusting and leaning on those people, ( such as her friends Ludovica and Sara and her fragile sister Viola ),who she had always thought she was to help.
