Anabel, driven by her husband’s career as a diplomat, dedicates her life to philanthropy. Her commitment to altruistically helping others has made her popular, making her a reference in raising donations for humanitarian organizations among her exclusive circle.

It’s during one of these charity banquets that she finds herself faced with her past when she recognizes one of the waitresses working for the catering service. It’s her daughter Chiara, who she abandoned when she was eight years old and hadn’t seen again in thirty- five years. It’s no coincidence, Chiara had found her. Mother and daughter embark on a journey into the past, alone, confronted with the difficult task of recovering thirty-five years in only ten days. Or that’s what Anabel thinks. Because Chiara has a hidden purpose.

And when Anabel discovers the real reason she has to face the most difficult decision on her life, a decision that will change her forever. Sunday's Illness is a drama loaded with intrigue, where what people say has nothing to do with what they really mean and in which the past and present coexist in the hidden corners of a dense forest.
