Carlo is an affluent university professor in Turin. He and his beautiful, superficial girlfriend live a carefree life. Then he loses everything in a disastrous financial operation: his home, his money, his girlfriend. He decides to return to his hometown, where a disturbing letter addressed to him by his dying father forces him to question the worth of his existence up to that point. He becomes a part of the life of his small town, which has a reality all its own: the undertaker keeps track of his fellow townspeople’s health, the schoolmistress is also a flower seller, and the mayor is a restaurant-owner by night. Carlo himself decides to start up a new educational adventure in the town’s small school.
