The life you wanted – writes Netflix in a press release – it is a story of bonds, friendship and discovery, which tells of the happiness we believe we want (planned, orderly, simple) but also of the one that surprises us, which messes up life.

Gloria – the protagonist of the TV series – is convinced that she has found happiness in Lecce, where she founded a small tourist agency and found love with Ernesto but, one day, her life is turned upside down by the arrival of Marina, her friend at the time of the university in Naples, before Gloria started her transition path. Marina brings with her Andrea and Arianna, her children from two different relationships, and is pregnant with a third, whose father is Pietro, a young man with a passionate and perhaps even dangerous character.
Gloria would prefer not to reconnect with Marina, she reminds her of a part of her life she would like to forget. However, Marina hides many secrets and soon Sergio, Arianna’s father, will also arrive on the scene, a man in one piece who was immediately very distrustful of Gloria. For her, the time has come to come to terms with “the life she wanted”, her past and her future, to discover that happiness sometimes comes in unexpected forms and that love is the only force capable of make life worth living.
