Guido is shy, reserved, well-educated. Antonia is restless, touchy and proudly ignorant. He is a night porter who loves ancient languages and saints, she is an aspiring singer and works for a car rental company. They see each other only in the early mornings when Guido returns from work and wakes her with breakfast, and they make love every blessed day.
They are the characters of a fun, romantic love story which unfolds in a complicated metropolis like Rome, with coarse, cheerful, desperate neighbors, and two families of origin which couldn’t be more different. A love that seems indestructible, until the obstinate thought of a child that doesn’t come sets unpredictable consequences in motion.
