After separating from his wife, Giulio lives in his car. When he is stopped by the police, he is arrested for the possession of an enormous amount of cocaine and is then violently beaten in prison. After being thrown out of the house by his wife – who discovered he was cheating on her – the woman got her revenge on Giulio and even refused to give him permission to go the United States for work. She later accused him of violence and got a restraining order against him. Nonetheless, in prison Giulio reacts and establishes relations with the other inmates and the prison personnel, and thus reconstructs a positive horizon for himself. A year and a half after entering Rebibbia, the policewoman who arrested him asks to see him: it's the beginning of a new phase that will lead to an unexpected turn of events.
