A Woman's Fairy Tale of Hope - a day trip just to get away is the starting point of a new life. Life's little turning points often come in the plainest forms. A casual encounter, a little oversight, a strange coincidence, a twist of fate. When a tour bus leaves without bored housewife and dutiful mother, Rosalba (Licia Maglietta), during a family holiday and not even her husband or children notice until it is too late, see sees an irresistible opportunity for freedom. 'Bread and Tulips' isn't so much about the difficult decisions we make in life, but the ones we make almost out of instinct...the wonderful, crazy spontaneity that makes us human.
