The film is an intimate portrait of the legendary Italian screenwriter, poet, painter, ceramist, artist Tonino Guerra. He recounts the important moments, which have determined the course of his life and career: from his childhood in Santarcangelo di Romagna to his retirement in the small mountain village of Pennabilli. He narrates his big adventure in the movies and his encounters and collaboration with some of the greatest film directors of our time – Fellini, Antonioni, Rosi, De Sica, Monicelli, Tarkovsky and Angelopoulos just to mention a few.
