Mariella has two teen-aged children, but that doesn't seem to have much impact on her life. She continues to be a reporter obsessed with digging for the next story, no matter what the personal difficulties involved. Her ex-husband is similarly involved in his career, and their son Paolo has had enough of this sort of parental indifference. He has split, flown the coop, disappeared, run away, and abandoned the nest. However, if his absence was intended to electrify his inattentive parents into paying attention to him (even in his absence), it almost looks as though the attempt will fail. Days go by before his unspeakable mother even notices he hasn't been around for a while. However, she's not an investigative reporter for nothing, and eventually, with the help of her current boyfriend, she tracks down her indignant offspring -- but not before she's given the essential clue to his whereabouts by his industrious eleven-year old sister, who has wired their entire apartment for sound, and who has hooked her computer up to all sorts of unlikely extensions.
