Three Coins

One Eternal City. Three women. Three wishes. Three coins.

American expatriates Emma, Tiffany and Annarita all meet up by chance at a 1950s movie night while on a restorative holiday at an Italian beach resort off-season. The triumphs and hardships of these three very different women become intertwined as they form an unlikely friendship and work to better their messy lives.
