The brothers Matteo and Ettore couldn't be more different. Only the diagnosis of a serious disease will allow them to make a final attempt at reconciliation.
Matteo is a successful businessman, audacious, charming and energetic, who loves the Roman party life and likes to be the centre of attention. His older brother Ettore, who still lives in their small home village, is completely different. Always accompanied by latent fears of failure, he makes ends meet as a school teacher. When Ettore is diagnosed with a serious illness, Matteo decides to bring his brother to Rome for the duration of the therapy.
