A surreal comedy set in a world in which we assume psychosomatic invisibility exists, that is where people with social difficulties, in some situation, literally disappear.
We then follow the encounter between Roberta, a girl who disappears if nobody pays any attention to her, and Massimo, an anxious guy, who on the contrary disappears if somebody does pay attention to him.
The film tells the protagonists' childhood, their early adult experiences and their arduous love story (as they struggle to be visible at the same time); and along the story we give a kind of surreal excursus over some aspects of our contemporary western societies.
