Professor Mori (Fabrizio Bentivoglio) is proud to be a new father, but his young wife, Vittoria (Valeria Bruni Tedeschi), cannot breast-feed the child, let alone care for it emotionally. Professor Mori hires illiterate peasant girl Annetta (Maya Sansa) to serve in their household as a wet nurse and nanny. Annetta is a natural caregiver, but she must abandon her own infant when she fills the position. Her presence in the house soon causes problems between the professor and his wife.
