Dino, a separated father with serious financial and management problems in his own life, breaks into the life of Leo, a successful cartoonist, phobic, antisocial and neurotic, after more than 30 years, disrupting the everyday life he still shares with his grandmother Rina and his brilliant best friend Wanda.
Old grudges never dormant, unlikely characters, lies and daring situations will irreparably distort their lives.
Christmas arrives and an innocent lie by Dino’s son will once again turn the situation upside down.
Nothing will ever be the same again…
