Filippo Fontana hosts a weekly nature show on Italian TV. He’s a difficult, arrogant man who abuses his colleagues and even his bosses. The network, knowing how much he hates warm weather, therefore takes sadistic pleasure in sending Filippo to the Canary Islands in the height of summer to cover the migration of a flock of storks to a local volcano. The beautiful ornithologist Rita carries the burden of showing him around. As always, Filippo immediately gets off on the wrong foot with everybody and starts counting the minutes until he can return to “civilization”. A freak storm prevents him from leaving and forces him to spend another night on the island. But when Filippo wakes up, it is not the next day. It’s the same day as yesterday, with the same people and the same situations and this day repeats itself again and again and again.
