Matteo (Riccardo Scamarcio) is a young successful entrepreneur, open-minded, fascinating and dynamic. His brother Ettore (Valerio Mastandrea) still lives in the small provincial town where both were born and where he teaches middle school. He is a cautious man, whole, who has always taken a step back in the shadows to avoid mistakes. They are two apparently very distant people. But life forces them to get closer and a difficult situation becomes for the two brothers the opportunity to get to know each other and discover themselves surprisingly united, in a vortex of fragility and tenderness, fear and euphoria.
