Matteo is a successful young entrepreneur, unscrupulous, charming and dynamic. His brother Ettore still lives in the small provincial town where they grew up and teaches in a middle school. He is a cautious, honest man who has always held back a little, sticking to the shadows, for fear of making a mistake. They would appear to be very different as people. But life forces them back together and a difficult situation provides the two brothers with the chance to know and discover each other in a vortex of fragility and euphoria.
