A young graduate from the province of Rome spends his days volunteering in the local church. One day, his father decides to make him face real life responsibility: he first sends him to work on a construction site, then takes away his house and food. A debut comedy shot in video and black and white, entertaining and only seemingly unaware of its homemade nature, made by three young directors full of ideas, a cinematic sense and a few hundred euros. An emblematic example of how young Italian cinema can express meaning making a virtue of necessity, as it waits in the constant hope of a new redistribution of resources.
