Alessandro wears his shiny lucky shirt, he feels stunning. He doesn’t feel his fifty years. After singing for an ungrateful audience, like every saturday night, he starts his day at Blu Star Disco. When in the morning his mother refuses to lend him some money to impress two young girls, Alessandro loses his mind. After a life wasted on a slot machine, already drunk early in the morning, hoping for the luck of a scratch card, he would never have imagined that love could find him. In an hospital. It's here, that he meets Francesca. Big green eyes, melancholy and bright, spontaneous as a child and two ship tickets in her pocket. For her and the son Antonio, five years old with a melting heart face (a face that would warm your heart).
In August, Sardinia is an explosion of white light, red-hot cement, golden countryside, sea that sparkles in the distance. Alessandro and Francesca are finally out of the hospital, on their way to a last chance.
