Miele is the story of Irene, a 30-year-old woman who helps people who are suffering: terminally-ill patients who want to hasten their inevitable end, or people whose sufferings diminish their dignity as human beings. One day, a 70-year-old man in good health, who simply thinks he has lived long enough, asks her to help him. Their meeting will put Irene's convictions to the test and trigger off an intense debate between the two, during the course of which their relationship becomes charged with implications and emotional ambiguity.

In 1983 Valeria Golino was signed by Lina Wertmüller to appear in A Joke of Destiny. Two years later, she had her first starring role in Peter Del Monte's Little Fires. Golino won the Volpi Cup for Best Actress for her role in Citto Maselli's A Tale of Love. At the age of 22 she moved to Hollywood and co-starred in Rain Man by Barry Levinson, alongside Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman, among other films. In 2002 she won a Silver Ribbon as Best Starring Actress for her role in Respiro by Emanuele Crialese, and in 2006 a David di Donatello in the same category, for Mario's War by Antonio Capuano. In 2009 she picked up another Silver Ribbon for Best Song ("Piangi Roma"), which she performed with the Baustelle in Giuseppe Piccioni's film Giulia Doesn't Date at Night, in which she also starred. In 2010 she made her directorial debut with the short Armandino and the Madre. Miele, which premiered at Cannes in the Un Certain Regard section, marked Golino's feature film debut.
