18 PRESENTS is the highly emotional story of a young girl named Anna (Benedetta Porcaroli) whose mother, Elisa (Vittoria Puccini), died giving birth to her. Anna's anger mounts as, year after year, friends and relatives gather to give her the gifts that her mother, diagnosed with cancer during pregnancy, had planned, all the way to her 18th birthday. The celebrations are always tinged with mourning for her young mother's death, making Anna feel guilty, rebellious, and ungrateful. She runs away on her 18th birthday, and things take an unexpected turn from there.
