Four friends in their forties -Pietro, a failed music manager, Enrico, an architect under the thumb of his future bride, Ascanio, a company motivator who has never put his head straight, and Jacopo, a senior prelate of the Vatican -are called to Lisbon for the funeral of a woman, Amalia, whom all four loved while doing Erasmus in Portugal. While there, they receive surprising news which throws their existence into chaos. Amalia has left them an unexpected legacy: a child conceived with one of them. But who is the father?
While waiting for the DNA results, the four friends decide to go in search of the mysterious off-spring who is now twenty years old. They embark on a daring and exciting journey through Portugal together, with a local girl who offers to help them.
They will relive the places and the sensations of twenty years before and take stock of their lives, which couldn’t be more different to what they had imagined as ambitious twenty year-old boys. They will discover at the same time that it is never too late to realize their dreams, to seize the opportunities that seemed lost and, just for one of them, perhaps, to become a father.
