Alberto is the manager of a Post Office in a small town in the northwest of Italy. Under pressure from his wife Silvia, he will do anything to get a transfer to Milan – even going so far as to pretend he is disabled to get higher up on the transfer list!
But this trick doesn’t work and as a punishment he is transferred to asmall town in the southern Campania region, which, for a person from the north, is a real nightmare. Full of prejudice, Alberto leaves alone to brave what he considers the land of camorra, full of dirty, lazy southerners. But, to his surprise, Alberto will instead find a fascinating place, with friendly colleagues, very hospitable people and a new best friend, the postman Mattia, who he will help to win the heart of the beautiful Maria.
The problem is, however, how does he tell Silvia? Since he has left, not only has their relationship been reborn, but to the eyes of his friends in the north, Alberto has become a real hero…
