The film centres on the Di Vitos, an Italian family who emigrate to Canada. Sabrina Ferilli stars as Antonia, who brings her children and her sister Paola (Gioia Spaziani) to Canada to join her husband Vincenzo (Tony Nardi), who came two years earlier to find work and build a home for his family; however, after discovering that Vincenzo began a relationship with another woman and fathered a child with her during his absence, she takes her children to Edmonton, Alberta to raise them as a single mother. In Edmonton she befriends Mario (Massimo Ghini), a truck driver who becomes a new love interest for her and a father figure to her children, and trains as a nurse, eventually taking a job in the medical office of doctor Steven (Henry Czerny).
