The naive Italian big boy FIORENZO (35) has a dream: to cross the Ocean. Unable to afford a real vacation, he arranges an "alternative holiday". He barricades himself inside his home, persuading everyone to have left for the Caribbean. But an unexpected, providential "travel" companion bursts into his life: MATRONA (55), a former prostitute who wants to prove herself that she is still able to seduce a man, despite the advancing age. Their co-habitation evolves from love-hate to complicity, in an intimate encounter of two souls, two solitudes.
